AU Trojan

AU is an innovative comprehensive university and as such we look for ways to ensure that our co-curricular activities are actively supporting the educational development of students inside the classroom. Recently the university adopted an innovative approach to the Core Curriculum as the Curriculum Enhancement Program was updated to actively support this change in the Core Curriculum. During the summer of 2019, the Curriculum Enhancement Program was redesigned to provide some common co-curricular experiences for students, as well as, allow students the opportunity to self select some unique experiences.

Students that enroll as traditional, undergraduate students, in the fall of 2019 or later will benefit from participating in this newly updated Curriculum Enhancement Program.

The purpose of the Curriculum Enhancement Program (CEP) is to enrich the student’s academic experience by providing co-curricular opportunities that reinforce the educational and personal development of students within the framework of the 18 Common Learning Outcomes (CLOs) as outlined in the AU Core Curriculum. Students will participate in required CEPs designed to assist with the transition into the AU community, promote professional readiness, and foster financial literacy. In addition to the required CEPs, students will attend at least 11 CEPs from the Student Selected offerings on campus.

The CEP Completion Plan is outlined below. Click on the boxes to learn more about the 4 tracks within the Curriculum Enhancement Program.
