Instructions for Vol Core Proposals

Sample AOC Proposal with attachments

Completed proposals should be dropped into a Sharepoint folder (sign in with your UTK email address and password; contact Barbara Murphy, Chair, General Education Committee, if you have difficulty) or emailed to (copy the appropriate subcommittee chair and the administrative officer having primary responsibility for undergraduate curriculum in the course’s host college to notify them of the submission). New courses must be approved at the College level prior to General Education approval, but proposals may be submitted concurrently in order to ensure sufficient time for review.
