As the General Education Renewal Committee stressed throughout this year, the proposed curriculum framework is not the final word on the new general education curriculum. It is meant to provide guidance to our colleagues who will be involved in the process of developing specific student learning outcomes, freshman seminar themes, pathway themes, courses to satisfy important skills (e.g. quantitative reasoning and oral communication), and culminating experiences within the various majors. These and other issues related to implementation and administration of the curriculum are meant to be developed over the next two years by numerous faculty and staff members working in an environment that promotes collegiality and consensus. Materials related to our committee’s deliberation process (i.e. readings, survey results, roundtable feedback, departmental feedback, expanded explanations of the different facets of the curriculum, and public meeting notes) is available to you through the General Education Renewal website. One of GERC’s final actions leading up to the faculty vote on the curriculum framework was to compile and summarize straw poll respondent suggestions for future deliberations. The following provides a synopsis of the straw poll responses, as well as GERC suggestions on how to act upon that feedback.
