Education Steering Committee


The Education Steering Committee (ESC)  serves as an advisory group to the University of Minnesota’s Curriculum and Assessment Committees, including Education Council (EC), the Committee for Undergraduate Medical Education in Duluth (CUMED), the Clinical Education Committee (CEC), the Scientific Foundations Committee (SFC), and the Assessment Committee (AC). The ESC reviews current and emerging educational issues and recommends actions to the relevant Committees. Issues include but are not limited to those that affect both horizontal and vertical integration of curriculum across campuses; emerging curricular challenges at the national level; strategic visioning related to curriculum and/or assessment; strategies for ensuring we meet strategic goals. At times, the ESC may act on directives by the EC to review specific educational issues.
