Identify a Common Core for the Major/Discipline of no more than four (4) courses. This Common Core will represent those courses or sequence of courses commonly required of students in the Major/Discipline at the lower division. These courses will be assigned an IAI Major/Discipline code. The committee will review submissions for assignment of these codes to specific courses offered by participating institutions and approved courses will be listed in the IAI database.
Provide a forum for faculty and administrators from public and independent colleges and universities to develop common understandings about the lower-division objectives and curriculum content in the discipline and to monitor changes and developments in the discipline that may affect a student’s preparation for upper division work.
Develop course, content, or learning objective recommendations for students who have chosen a major but have not decided upon a baccalaureate institution. Such recommendations should be designed to provide the undecided student with an appropriate lower-division preparation for upper-division studies at likely baccalaureate institutions.
Consider national or statewide articulation issues of particular relevance to students in the major and advise the Steering Panel on appropriate options or resolutions.
