Franklin College Multicultural Requirement

Franklin College of Arts and Sciences Multicultural Policies and Procedures:

A.  Resolution on United States Multiculturalism (5/27/93)

1.  Resolutions 2 and 3, adopted November 7, 1991, will be replaced with the following:

"The Faculty Senate of the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences recommends that courses with a significant focus on African American, Asian American, Hispanic American, or Native American cultures be added to the curriculum of the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences."

2.  The significant focus of a course on these four cultures will be described in the course description in the Undergraduate Bulletin.

3.  This requirement may be fulfilled by transfer credit for a course clearly identified by its course description as having a significant focus on one or more of these four cultures.

4.  Courses which do not a prior fulfill the requirements specified above include the following:

  • Courses which focus only on the source cultures for these American cultures
  • Introductory or skill-oriented language courses
  • Survey courses that include African American, Asian American, Hispanic American, or Native American cultures as one of many topics

5.  Implementation of the requirement specified in the above resolutions will take place upon the recommendation of the Franklin College Curriculum Committee to the Dean of the Franklin College that sufficient seats are available in courses that meet this requirement. At that time, the Franklin College Curriculum Committee will provide a list of courses that meet this requirement to the Dean. Amendments of this list will be made by the Franklin College Curriculum Committee at the request of the departments of the Franklin College and the approval of the Senate.

NOTE: The Dean’s Office strongly suggests that anyone requesting a course to be approved for the Franklin College multicultural list also request that the course be approved to meet the University Cultural Diversity requirement, which can be found here.  Franklin College advisors encourage students to take a course that meets both requirements. Please indicate in your letter of justification your request to have the course approved for the University Cultural Diversity requirement at the same time.

To submit a request, please follow the steps below:
  • Submit a letter of justification signed by the Department Head
  • Upload a printout of the course syllabus
  • Upload a printout of the CAPA description
  • You will need to upload your request to:  SUBMIT A REQUEST.
  • Once the Franklin College Curriculum Committee has reviewed and approved your request, it will be emailed to the Office of Curriculum Systems and to the Department Head.  No further action is needed.
