CE Integration Plan Adopted by Curriculum Council

The proposal submitted to Curriculum Council in February detailing a CE requirement for all Wesleyan students was officially approved this April.  Beginning in the 2010 Fall semester, first-year seminar students will participate in one of eight available Service Days.  After their experience in first-year seminar, students will then complete their community engagement requirement at Wesleyan by taking at least one CE-designated course before graduation.  Within the proposal, the requirements are intentionally designed to be completely integrated into current practices of the first-year seminar, as well as open for designation within other requirements, such as major/minor and general education requirements.  While the requirement will not be instated until Fall 2010, a pilot program for the first year service days will be implemented Fall 2009 with all first-year seminars.
