Second Review of Proposed Revision to Senate Regulation 424.A.3 (Area H)
February 28, 2024

Systemwide Senate Chair James Steintrager submitted a proposed revision to Senate Regulation (SR) 424.A.3 for a second round of systemwide Senate review. The amendment introduces an A-G ethnic studies requirement for freshman admission to the University (Area H).

The proposal was revised in response to Academic Council comments following an initial systemwide Senate review in academic year 2021-22. The revised proposal includes an updated set of course criteria and guidelines for Area H, developed by BOARS’ Ethnic Studies Implementation Workgroup, which outlines UC’s expectations for Area H.

A link to the proposal is provided in the Resources box. Faculty who wish to comment are welcome to do so. All comments received by March 28, 2024 will be included in the review materials for Senate Council consideration.
