CLAS Standing (Appointed) Committees — General Education Curriculum Committee

The General Education Curriculum Committee (GECC) is appointed by the Undergraduate Educational Policy and Curriculum Committee (UEPCC) to oversee the GE CLAS Core. Ordinarily, members serve for three consecutive years with a student member serving for one year.  

The committee works closely with UEPCC to establish procedures for the approval of General Education status for existing courses; to establish procedures for the five-year assessment of courses with approved GE status; to overview that assessment conducted by instructors, and to advise the College and UEPCC on General Education issues. The College's Manual of Procedure (Article X) describes the General Education Curriculum Committee and its duties in more detail.

Information for faculty members about the GE CLAS Core is available on the Faculty CLAS pages.
