Please note that as of October 2017, all GMP courses with the exception of the Thematic Sequence are now embedded within the Universal Course Proposal. You may use this form to propose designations for the existing or new GMP courses.

Additional information on the new Course Proposal Process can be found at Academic Affairs.

When you are ready to submit for approval, you must use the Curriculum Management Forms for courses or programs on the Registrar's website (See “Submit Curriculum Proposal” tab below).

Instructions for Submitting GMP Course Proposals

Please note: All GMP Proposals should include a syllabus, which includes:

  • A description of the course, course goals, and a statement noting that the course meets the selected GMP requirement. A short student-centered explanation of how and why it is a GMP course and what that means for students would be helpful.

  • A description of the major Student Learning Outcomes that incorporate the GMP.

  • An overview of the two required competencies of Written Communication and Critical Thinking.

  • A weekly calendar for the first few weeks of the course that illustrates one or two activities tied to the GMP designation.

From 2012-2014, the university devoted considerable energy and time to revising its Global Miami Plan requirements. The Liberal Education Council (LEC), comprising representatives from student affairs, student government, the library and university senate, regional campuses, and faculty from each of the five divisions, cordially invites proposals for the revised Global Miami Plan.

Faculty interested in proposing courses are encouraged to review the “General Information” and to view the assessment and program review tools relating to the aims of liberal education. Assessment tools are also available on the CTE website.

The course must go through the curriculum approval process with the Registrar's Office before departments complete the Global Miami Plan proposal form for the Office of Liberal Education.

Support for incorporating writing and writing instruction into GMP courses is available at the Howe Center for Writing Excellence in King Library.

In addition, faculty are encouraged to speak with the University Director of Liberal Education, Shelly Jarrett Bromberg (, who can provide feedback on course proposal drafts prior to LEC review and indicate additional resources regarding liberal education. Liberal Education Council is also interested in any insights you can provide as to how we might continue to enhance liberal education at Miami University.

If you have questions, contact Shelly Jarrett Bromberg.
