What is meant by the term "General Education?"

What are GE Learning Outcomes and Why do we need them?

Campus-wide discussions were held to address what is mant by "General Education" & how our courses and programs contribute to this educational experience.

SCC’s first formal dialogue on GE learning outcomes (GELOs) was held in April, 2006 with two additional forums in August and October.  Approximately 40 faculty, staff and administrators engaged in thoughtful discussions of what constitutes a “general education” for our graduates and how this aligns with our educational values.

Task groups with representatives from across the college were created and worked hard to develop specific GELOs for the areas generated by the campus workshops and discussions in Spring and Fall, 2006.  Feedback from additional forums, committee presentations, division/department meetings, and Enews bulletins was utilized in this process.

Please review the resources below that were used for and generated by these discussions.
