New Core ‘visual designator’ to help students

Ashland University has a new ‘visual designator’ for the        Undergraduate Core Curriculum.

The word ‘core’ is used to refer to a variety of courses within various majors, but there is only one institutional ‘Core Curriculum’, said Dr. William Vaughan, University Core Director. “Whenever you see this designator, you will know that this course has been approved for one of those areas that everyone needs to graduate.”

Departments are free to use this designator to refer to core courses in their print advertising and on websites, and to help students distinguish between a ‘core’ course in their major and the undergraduate core. The designator is available in other colors and the plan is to use the various designators to identify Core Classes online.  Kris Kennedy and others in the Marketing Department came up with the new design.
For more information on using the Core Visual Designator, contact Dr. William Vaughan at wvaughan@ashland.edu.
