We include below the AUCC core description for ECC140. This description, approved by the University Curriculum Committee, lays out the key components of the course.
We also include the same material as it was reshaped for the Colorado Commission on Higher Education. Following a rigorous review process, the CCHE accepted this description of ECC140 as a designated "state core" course guaranteed to transfer to any other state-funded institution of higher education. The CCHE materials are more explicit than the AUCC description about how critical thinking, reading, and writing shape the course.
