To ensure that students understand the continuity of General Education as a whole and the specific goals of each course, faculty are requested to list in their syllabi the General Education goals corresponding to the category in which the course is located.
Click on the appropriate category; then cut and paste the text into your syllabus:
New course proposals must be submitted in the Curriculum Forms System. Where appropriate, answer "Yes" to the question on the form to indicate that the course is being proposed as an Illinois State General Education course. Attach documentation to the online proposal indicating how the course addresses the General Education goals specific to the category designation you are requesting.
Current course revision proposals must be submitted in the Curriculum Forms System. The form includes questions related to the General Education Program. Please be sure to indicate if the course you are revising is currently a General Education course or if you want it to be reviewed for inclusion in the General Education Program.
The Institutional Artifact Portfolio (IAP) process for General Education assessment has been designed to help illustrate students’ acquisition of the knowledge and skills addressed in the General Education Program. Information collected from the Institutional Artifact Portfolio will provide faculty with specific data to address areas of strength and weakness of the current General Education curriculum.
General Education syllabi will be collected periodically to verify continuity with program outcomes.
Visit the University Assessment Services website to access information and forms necessary to participate in the Institutional Portfolio Process for the General Education Program.
