The General Education Program is administered by the General Education Committee (GEC) and the Office of Undergraduate Affairs.

The GEC establishes a philosophy of what constitutes the general education component for baccalaureate degrees offered by the University.  The GEC reviews, in accordance with established criteria, all courses proposed to fulfill General Education and University Writing and Math requirements, and it makes recommendations to the University Curriculum Committee regarding the continued effectiveness of the general education program.

Together with the Office of Institutional Assessment and the Office of Undergraduate Affairs, the GEC conducts periodic reviews of general education courses and assessments of student achievement of the general education student learning outcomes.
