General Education Review Committee (GERC)

Mission:

The GERC reviews and oversees the University’s General Education curriculum, makes recommendations for developing and enhancing General Education at UOG, evaluates submissions of courses for inclusion in the General Education curriculum, and coordinates and evaluates assessments and reviews of the General Education courses and curriculum.

 
Recent Achievements:

The GERC has applied an exhaustive review of theory and evidence on effective general education programs—and a comprehensively inclusive series of exchanges with the faculty as a whole—to the design and implementation of a new General Education curriculum. At the heart of this curriculum are instruction in and assessment of the WASC Core Competencies, along with courses that uniquely serve the needs of the region.

 

Fanuchånan objectives:

  • Assessment plan – forms, templates, cycle
  • Continue review of course proposals
  • Approval of templates for GE amendments (substantive and nonsubstantive) changes
  • Clarify definition of GE at UOG in relation to mission of the University
  • Three year review process – what are we looking for – annual benchmarks?
