Global Miami Plan Redesign Committee - Local Advisory Committee

The June 2019 Strategic Planning Report included recommendations that the Global Miami Plan be "transformed... to better prepare students for success." At the behest of Provost Osbourne and Associate Provost Carolyn Haynes, the Liberal Education Council undertook the challenge to review our General Education plan and make key recommendations for targeted revisions. Beginning in September 2019, this committee, comprised of LEC members and key additional members, began meeting on a bi-weekly basis.
