GENERAL EDUCATION COMMITTEE                                       RES425_020813

WHEREAS, The General Education curriculum, which includes the core courses, is critical to the University’s mission, and as such, it should be continually monitored, assessed and reviewed to ensure that it is meeting its goals and evolving to meet student needs. It is appropriate to have a standing faculty committee established and elected to carry out these tasks.
The responsibilities of the committee will include:
         overseeing the General Education curriculum and recommending modifications when necessary;
         ensuring that there is a consistent assessment plan using appropriate rubrics and graded assignments as assessment tools; and
         reviewing the General Education curriculum on an annual basis, and generating a report for distribution to the Faculty; and
WHEREAS, The description of the committee that will be added to the Faculty By-Laws is as follows:
The Committee on General Education, composed of nine members elected by the Faculty, one representative from the Administration, and one student. The elected members include two Faculty members from each school (one from each school must have General Education instructional responsibilities), one Faculty member from the Library and two Faculty members at large. The Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs or his/her designee represents the Administration, and the student is elected/appointed by the Student Government Association; now, therefore be it

, That a new Faculty standing committee will be established and titled The General Education Committee (recommended by the University Faculty).
