Revised CIV learning outcomes

The General Education Oversight Committee approved revised Civic Inquiry (CIV) learning outcomes in January 2024 that will go into effect in Fall 2024. Syllabi and course proposals should therefore use the revised learning outcomes going forward:

Upon successful completion of the CIV requirement, students will be able to:

       1. Describe concepts and contexts relevant to US history, political institutions, and democratic principles.

       2. Describe the significance of citizenship status and national identity, past or present.

       3. Describe forms, barriers, and facilitators to civic participation or engagement by individuals and groups.

       4. Describe the economic, historic, political, and social bases for conflict and cooperation between groups.
