Curricular Changes and General Education Regarding Anti-racism

Mission

The mission of the UD Anti-racism Initiative’s Committee “UD Curricular Changes/General Education” is to evaluate the Multicultural and General Education requirements to see where we can make some transformative differences in the curriculum in terms of social justice and anti-racism. The overall goal is to create a shared vocabulary and knowledge base about racial literacy that is built over the course of each student’s time at UD.

Goals

  • Our first goal is to evaluate the Multicultural Requirement. We are currently working with the Faculty Senate’s Multicultural/Breadth Task Force to make revisions to this requirement. We also plan to examine the FYE and DLE as potential sites for more consciously constructed curricular transformation.
