Dear Students, 

Are you looking for a different kind of Gen Ed course on a topic you care about?  

If so, check out the Grand Challenge Learning (GCL) courses for Fall 2017 on 

  • Inequality and cultural understanding
  • Sustainability, energy, and the environment
  • Health and wellness 

Each course fulfills one or more Gen Ed requirements. 100-level courses are open to Freshmen, Sophomores, and First-Year Transfer Students. These courses include hands-on learning opportunities such as field trips, project design, or work in the community. For more about the classes, watch this video of two Grand Challenge Learning professors talking about what makes their courses exciting and unique. 

Our 200-level courses are open to all students and fulfill multiple Gen Ed requirements. In a 200-level “Critical Frameworks” course, you will learn about Grand Challenge Topics in Sustainability, Building Healthy Communities, or Inequality from professors of diverse disciplines like engineering, the physical sciences, the life sciences, business, the arts and humanities, and the social sciences. Faculty will share responsibility for the lecture but each will also lead a discussion seminar for which you register. That way, you enjoy the benefit of learning from all the professors but work consistently and closely with one. 

To learn more about this fall’s courses, check them out on Course Explorer. All fall GCL courses are open so you can register today!
