PROPOSING NEW COURSES FOR THE GENERAL EDUCATION PROGRAM


Through December 2011, the GECAC will be reviewing courses for implementation in Fall 2012.

It is advisable to introduce new courses in the Fall.  The deadline for Fall 2011 courses has passed.   The GECAC will prioritize recertifications during the first two meetings of the spring semester and then consider courses and recertifications on a first-come first-served basis. Courses approved in spring 2011 will be added to the gen ed curriculum in Fall 2012 unless the program specifically requests approval effective Spring 2012.

Please note that a new course must be submitted to and approved by the department and/or college curriculum committee using the UCC New course proposal form prior to being submitted to GECAC using the forms below. If a new course is approved by UCC before being submitted to GECAC then it should be submitted to GECAC as an existing course. Alternatively proposers can submit it to GECAC as a new course first and then submit to UCC after getting GECAC approval.

Downloadable syllabus templates for General Education Courses—in progress


Common Core Syllabus Templates—To assist faculty with including the correct information on their general education syllabi the GECAC has developed the following templates.  Program faculty have previously applied to have these course placed into specific categories on the basis of particular outcomes from the general education program.  It is important that the syllabus provide students with accurate information about the general education program and that the designated outcomes be covered.
