Optional Enrichment Electives (OEE)

Optional Enrichment Electives (OEEs) are elective courses designed by students and overseen by faculty.  They differ from traditional electives in that students are NOT required to participate in this program, they are created by students according to established criteria and must be approved by the Longitudinal Committee, a subcommittee of the Education Policy Committee.  They appear on the transcript of students who complete the necessary requirements.  Failure to complete the course requirements successfully results in the course not being listed on the student’s transcript.  OEEs generally span the course of a semester and many are offered to interprofessional learners. 

Please follow the proposal approval process below to propose a new OEE:

For Fall start (September/October) you must have new OEE proposals in to the Project Coordinator by June 1st.  You will come to the June meeting to propose your new OEE to the whole committee.

For Spring start (January/February) you must have new OEE proposals in to the Project Coordinator by October 1st.  You will come to the October meeting to propose your new OEE to the whole committee.

Please read the proposal approval process guidelines carefully and have a well completed proposal. 

We will only take four new OEE proposals each timeframe, on a first come first serve basis.

Submit your proposal to the project coordinator, then your proposal will be preliminarily reviewed by a Longitudinal Committee member, the Project Coordinator will be in-touch with you before you present to the whole committee if there are changes needed.  Then you will present your proposal to the whole Longitudinal Committee for approval.
