- Support and work with the university administration to develop and pilot a minimum of one core course as generally described in the Report of the Task Force on General Education during AY2015/16. The first Core Pilot Course is to be offered in Fall 2016 and further, any Core Pilot Course will be counted as a UD Breadth course.
- Provide regular and timely updates to the Faculty Senate General Education Committee and the Faculty Senate on the development, piloting, and assessment of these pilot courses.
- Develop an assessment plan for the Core in conjunction with CTAL.
- Make a recommendation to the Faculty Senate at the conclusion of an initial pilot as to whether or not to proceed with development of the core course(s) and the implementation of a core course(s) requirement.
- Work with the university administration to develop a financial plan for said implementation. The committee will be dissolved by a vote of the Faculty Senate.

- Long term sustainability is a design requirement, i.e., will the pilot be able to scale up to a course that can be required of all UD students?
- Should the common reader come into the core?
With funding approved by the Office of the Provost, the Ad Hoc Committee on the Core has created a call for core course creation proposals. This call for proposals will circulate to all faculty on Monday, February 8, 2016. During the February 8 Faculty Senate Meeting, members of the Senate will receive copies of this call for proposals, and Core Committee Chair Eric Rise will answer questions about it.
