Gen Ed Revision Task Force holding conversations on undergraduate curriculum changes

The General Education Revision Task Force will be meeting with faculty, staff, and student groups this semester to discuss how to revise UNCG’s General Education Program.

The decision to revise the Program was made following a Self-Study conducted in 2017-2018. The Task Force will be working on a proposal to submit to Faculty Senate by March 1, 2019, and the Senate will deliberate and decide on that proposal by the end of the spring semester.

To start the discussion, the Task Force has prepared a series of model proposals. Summaries of these proposals (and an opportunity for feedback) can be found on the Task Force website: https://provost.uncg.edu/resources/generaled/

Two all-campus forums to discuss revision plans will be held:
September 24 (3 – 5 pm)
November 15 (9 – 11 am).

The Faculty Senate is also sponsoring a Faculty Forum on General Education revision on October 17 (3 – 5 pm). All three forums will be held in the Virginia Dare Room of the Alumni House.

A list of other conversations planned by the Task Force this fall is on the Task Force website: https://provost.uncg.edu/resources/generaled/

The Task Force wants to ground its General Education Revision proposal on the input received from the University community during these fall conversations, so everyone is encouraged to engage with this process and offer their opinions and suggestions for the Task Force to consider.
