Core Scholars Program
Each year the Core Scholars Program invites anyone who has taken a Core course to reflect on the materials of the Core Curriculum by creating a Core Reflection. Students who create exceptionally creative and well executed Reflections will be honored as Core Scholars; their Core Reflections will be featured here on the Core Curriculum website.
Preceptor Teaching Awards
Each year we recognize excellence in teaching that honors graduate student instructors in Core courses, including Contemporary Civilization, Literature Humanities, Art Humanities, and Music Humanities. The award is presented at the end-of-year faculty reception.
