General Education Transformation Steering Committee

General Education Transformation Steering Committee

In late 2011, Provost Sherman convened the General Education Transformation Steering Committee and charged it with recommending a revised framework for our General Education curriculum.

A guiding principle is the need to move from a segmented model in which general education is often seen as separate (the first two years) from degree programs to a more fully integrated model in which general education serves as the essential infrastructure for degree programs.
