Advancing General Education

The General Education Task Force was formed to consider and develop an innovative program that would contribute to the first year experience of our students. The task force was charged with designing a pilot study that would incorporate interdisciplinary teaching with topics of global relevance. The pilot study would also provide some models for a revised general education program consistent with the Academic Plan. To this end, the Task Force developed the Grand Challenge Initiative.
