General Education

GE Committee (CAB)

The GE Committee, or Curriculum Advisory Board (CAB), is responsible for making recommendations to the Provost or designee on the implementation, monitoring, and development of the GE program. In consultation with appropriate disciplinary faculty, it is responsible for the coordination of assessment and the addition or deletion of individual courses as well as any proposed substitutions. Since CAB will advise the Provost on a major university program, it may either initiate advice or respond to requests for advice.

In Fall 21, CAB meets on alternating Mondays from 1-2:50.  All meetings are open to the public on Zoom.
