Curricular Toolkit

The Culminating Undergraduate Experience (CUE) is one of the many high impact practices of the University of Louisville. This CUE curricular toolkit is designed to provide support and resources for faculty, staff and others who are developing, implementing and assessing culminating undergraduate experiences at the University of Louisville. Under each chapter you will find expanded descriptions of each category or defining feature, background context, examples from UofL courses, and references for further reading.

This CUE resource continues to grow. Please check back frequently for new tools, resources and references! (We strive to maintain an up-to-date website. If you find a link that is not active, please contact Dr. Nisha Gupta.)
