The General Education Curriculum Committee (GECCo) was created in Fall 2009 by the Faculty Assembly.

GECCo’s charge is:

  1. to provide faculty-driven, holistic oversight of the General Education curriculum
  2. to develop and implement an ongoing General Education assessment plan on a multi-year cycle

GECCo reports to the Faculty Assembly, via the Faculty Assembly Executive Council.

GECCo makes recommendations about changes to the Gen Ed curriculum to the Academic Review Committee (ARC)

GECCo: New Gen Ed Curriculum

Historic Documents

In May 2009, a team of faculty and staff, led by the Vice Provost for Curriculum and Assessment, attended the AAC&U General Education Institute in Minnesota. The group continued over summer 2009 as the Ad Hoc Working Group for Gen Ed (AHWGGE). Their final report serves as the working foundation for the development of a comprehensive General Education Assessment Plan.
