Larry Schuetz gave a brief history of the General Education Review Committee (GERC) and distributed a document which was a very general set of guidelines that the GERC uses to evaluate curriculum for General Education credit. Larry pointed out that the committee looks for course numbering, the level of background needed to take the course, how the curricullum approaches the subject area (broad context - social, ethical, etc.), how it promotes critical thinking, what kind of assignments it requires, etc. Courses that hold General Education credit must be made available to all students.
