Gen Ed Revision Report topic of today’s special Faculty Senate meeting

Today’s Faculty Forum has been canceled to accommodate a Special Meeting of the Faculty Senate. The topic will be the General Education Revision Task Force Report.

Today’s (March 20) meeting will be held 3-5 p.m. in Alumni House.

In spring 2017, the UNCG Faculty Senate and the UNCG General Education Council approved a call for a task force of UNCG faculty to conduct a self-study of the UNCG General Education Program. The General Education Revision Task Force has been working on a new General Education Plan for UNCG students.

Dr. Alice Haddy and Dr. Chuck Bolton serve as co-chairs of the task force.

Last summer, the task force designed a variety of model Gen Ed programs to provide examples for the campus community. In the past half year, they have taken part in many Campus Conversions, including three forums, several faculty focus groups, faculty meetings of several schools, three student focus groups and panels, administrative groups and councils, a meeting with Community College partners, and additional outreach. They also received input via a web site survey.

The members of the task force and background information may be viewed here.
