About the Core of Common Studies Revision Process
As part of its commitment to continuously improving undergraduate education, Marquette University is engaged in a multiyear process to revise its University Core of Common Studies. The UCCS provides the unifying academic experience for students across the university's undergraduate colleges and is central to the transformational education our institution promises.
In May 2015, President Michael R. Lovell and Provost Dan Myers issued a campus-wide charge to revise and revitalize the UCCS in light of 21st-century pedagogical research and our continuing commitment to Jesuit higher education.
During the next two years, our campus community and other stakeholders will collaborate to redesign and revise our core.
