CoLA Course proposals sought by April 15

Emory Report | Feb. 24, 2015

The Coalition of the Liberal Arts (CoLA) invites proposals for CoLA Courses, due on April 15. A forum on course proposals will be held Tuesday, Feb. 24, at 5 p.m. in Room 114 of the School of Nursing.

CoLA Courses are intended to create flexible faculty and student learning communities by crossing schools, as well as student populations. Courses must be open to undergraduate students from any Emory school or college; graduate students and other faculty and staff are also welcome to participate. CoLA invites proposals that think creatively about course structure and pedagogy.

CoLA Courses should meet the following requirements:

  • Be proposed by a faculty-student course development team that includes a minimum of two faculty members from different schools across the university, at least two undergraduate students, and may also include graduate and professional students and/or staff.
  • Reflect a communal learning process.
  • Include an experiential learning component.
  • Connect to the larger Emory community through active engagement.

Those who are interested in CoLA Courses but cannot attend the forum should send any ideas or concerns to Ruqayyah Strozier, the CoLA program assistant, at ruqayyah.strozier@emory.edu.

More information about CoLA Courses, including a link to the full call for proposals, is available at Liberal Arts Forward.
