Welcome to the UW-Eau Claire Liberal Education Core Home
We're excited and getting ready to launch our new Liberal Education Core starting with the 2016/17 academic year.
The new LE Core framework focuses on students gaining a foundation of understanding within eleven learning areas, completing a minimum of 36 credits. Most of the LE Core will be completed within the first two years on campus. There will be opportunities for higher-level learning within the core during the final years of the university experience also.
Changes are already happening in preparation for the transition to the new LE Core. Instructors across campus are making revisions to academic offerings to align a wide range of courses and experiences to the LE Core learning outcomes. Experiences that have been in the pilot stage are ready to become fully integrated.
Stay tuned. There is more to come!
