UNO faculty and staff are invited to an information session on the new Exploratory Studies Concentration on Wednesday, Nov. 20, from 2:30 - 4 P.M. in 132 CPACS.
In response to the Chancellor’s Completion Imperative, piloting this spring 2020 and launching fully this fall 2020, students who were previously designated as “undecided/undeclared” upon admission will be reclassified as “Exploratory Studies” students via the Exploratory Concentration of the College of Arts and Sciences’ Interdisciplinary Studies major.
This Exploratory Studies Concentration is an immediate but temporary academic home. It will support students up until their first 45 hours through a framework of intentional coursework (INDS 1000 and sheltered general education classes from across all colleges) and purposeful advising with ACDC. Students will migrate to their major and college of choice no later than their 45th hour.
Dr. Tammie Kennedy, Director of INDS/Exploratory Studies, will be there to provide information and answer questions, including how faculty can get involved. Dr. Sammi Kaiser, Director of ACDC, Rachel Tomcak, Director of CAS Advising, and Dr. Matt Tracy, Director of General Education and Dual Enrollment, will also answer questions about advising and Pathways.
For more information, please contact Kennedy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
