UW-Whitewater University Handbook

General Education Review Committee


This committee will draft a response for consideration by the Faculty Senate and the University Curriculum Committee to the questions raised in the UW-System document, "Initial and Continuing Five-Year Joint Review of the General Education Requirements," April 9, 1987.

Recommend to the Faculty Senate steps to be taken, according to normal curricular processes, to bring UW-Whitewater into conformance with UW-System policy as stated in the UW-System document, "Associate Degrees in the University of Wisconsin, Minimum General Education Breadth Requirements and Associate Degree Transfer Policy," April 17, l987.

Recommend to the Faculty Senate proposals for a standard procedure for subsequent regular reviews of General Education Requirements.

It is expected that this committee will have the clerical and information gathering capabilities of the University at its disposal, and that it will do this work in an atmosphere of consultation with the Faculty Senate and with campus curricular agencies.

Reports to the Faculty Senate shall be made to the April and November meetings of the Senate.
