|More information available on general education proposal|
Due to faculty requests for more information about the new general education proposal, the General Education Task Force web site now contains a "frequently asked questions (FAQ)" section as well as the committee's minutes, ideas it considered and voted upon, and other additional materials. Answers for questions such as how the new general education program will be implemented can be found in the FAQ. Discussions and votes taken during the proposal formation process, as well as goals and features discussed, can be found in the minutes section. Information on general education at other universities, collected and researched by the task force, can be found under "General Education Programs." Additional information on the three new goals in the general education proposal can be found in the forthcoming issue of "On Teaching."
To ensure that all faculty have read the proposal, hard copies will be mailed to all faculty early this week. The General Education Task Force is working with the Student Senate and the Dakota Student to get information on the proposal out to students. The proposal will be discussed at the next University Senate meeting Friday, May 4.
