General Education Assessment Committee

Our Purpose

The purpose of the General Education Assessment Committee (GEAC) is to collect and analyze assessment data from Kutztown University's General Education Program. The General Education Program consists of eight Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs). Each year, the GEAC is charged with submitting data-informed recommendations to the division of Academic and Student Affairs, the University Curriculum Committee, and the General Education Committee on ways to improve the structure and content of the General Education program at Kutztown University.

The American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) developed assessment practices that deepen, integrate, and demonstrate student learning, through learning-centered assessment policies and approaches. Additionally, through the VALUE (Valid Assessment of Learning in Undergraduate Education) initiative, AAC&U has worked with faculty and assessment expert teams across the country to develop rubrics through which institutions can evaluate student learning across courses and programs (AAC&U, 2017). The GEAC has modified and adapted these rubrics for assessment of the General Education Program SLOs at Kutztown University. The focus of assessment is on student learning as demonstrated through student work products.




The General Education Assessment Committee (GEAC) was formed in December 2010. Since that time, the GEAC meets on a regular basis. Below are the minutes from the GEAC meetings to date.
