  3. Policy Discussion

    T. Flateby told the Council members what her ad hoc group, the General Education Assessment Advisor Committee, was doing. They have met one time so far. They are trying to determine what outcomes are measurable and comprehensive in scope. They are going to look at the General Education dimensions. They will be looking a the Liberal Arts math course MGH 1106. They want to look at how the students perceive that they have changed because of the liberal arts courses they have taken. They also want to look at how effective we are at delivering the various perspectives approved for each course.

    The Council members decided to begin reviewing the Liberal Arts Exit courses that are certified to meet Literature and Writing. Sandy Reynolds will draft a memo for Dean Sullins to send out to department chairs requesting current syllabi and letting them know that the Council is beginning a review of the entire Liberal Arts curriculum.
