Following up on Ithaca College’s review of the Integrative Core Curriculum in April, the college has selected a task force to review the ICC.
A year into his tenure as the Integrative Core Curriculum director, Vincent DeTuri said he and the Committee on College-Wide Requirements are planning to make the ICC more manageable by changing some of its requirements after facing complaints among faculty and students that there are still many problems with the ICC.
On paper, it is an innovative program with interesting choices. In practice, it is less: a curriculum that is difficult to provide and that limits student authority over their courses.
As the second year of the Integrative Core Curriculum winds down, the Committee for College-wide Requirements is evaluating the number of courses offered in the ICC based on student need and response to courses currently offered.
The Ithaca College Faculty Council discussed its continued efforts to communicate with committees and the college on vetting experimental courses and negotiating the proposed intellectual property policy at its monthly meeting Nov. 12.
