The BU Hub General Education Proposal Management tool provides for creation and management of proposals for courses and clusters of courses as well as co-curricular learning experiences via varied pathways, such as service learning projects, internships, and team teaching across colleges. This tool supports faculty and administration by providing intuitive, and collaborative methods to create, submit, review and approve new and revised courses and co-curricular activities within the BU Hub.


The curriculum management tool facilitates submission, review, approval and accessible archiving of courses and co-curricular experiences that will be proposed to the University Council Subcommittee on General Education. The tool supports the management of a high volume of new and revised course proposals in an intuitive and efficient manner.  The curriculum management tool is built on LeepFrog’s Curriculum Management solution (CourseLeaf), which provides workflow, approval, and reporting features.
