General Education Committee (GEC)

The General Education Committee (GEC) is a standing committee reporting to the University Curriculum Committee (UCC). According to the UCC Bylaws, the "Primary purpose of the GEC will be to make recommendations about both new and existing courses to be included in the General Education curriculum." Furthermore, the March 15, 2010, General Education Task Force Report further stipulates that the GEC will administer the implementation of the new General Education program. Any future changes to the General Education program, including approval of Competency Across the Curriculum courses, will be recommended by the GEC to the UCC which retains final approval. The GEC has established its own set of Bylaws and Operating Procedures (click HERE to download a copy).

The membership of the GEC consists of eight faculty members (one from each of the four undergraduate colleges and another four elected at large), the Provost or designee, and one student. The current membership is as follows:
