RE:  Invitation to General Education Revision Taskforce Forum

We hope that everyone had a productive yet restful summer.  We know that this was not the case for the many faculty that continued to work over the summer to revise UNC Greensboro’s General Education Program.  We would like to invite you to presentation and discussion about the results of their labor.

In May the Provost tasked several faculty and staff with finishing the process that was started in fall 2017 to develop a new curriculum for Gen Ed.  That group expanded to include other faculty with specialized disciplinary knowledge in areas like written communication, oral communication, quantitative literacy and others.  In all, more than 45 people worked on different elements of the draft that has been developed.

The plan includes a simplified structure, definitions and learning outcomes for the competencies that have been endorsed for the plan, and consideration of components that were proposed as new additions to the General Education curriculum.

Please join us on Aug. 28, 2019 from 3-5 pm in the EUC Auditorium to see a presentation of the new plan and provide feedback to the General Education Revision Taskforce members.

Thank you,

Amy Harris Houk and Jodi Pettazzoni
