The General Education Advisory Committee serves three purposes:
- To promote and ensure the quality and centrality of the liberal arts curriculum for the undergraduate programs at Clarke University.
- To serve as a resource for reviewing and making recommendations relative to the Clarke University General Education Program.
- To provide guidance for students/faculty relative to the on-going implementation of General Education Program.
Six divisional representatives and the Director of General Education
General Education Divisions will select one faculty member as a representative. Ordinarily, this individual will teach a minimum of three general education courses each academic year.
Professional Divisions will be represented as follows:
- One member selected from the health sciences faculty: Athletic Training, Kinesiology, Nursing, and Physical Therapy
- One member selected from the Business, Communication, Computer Science/CIS, and Education faculty.
NOTE: It is desirable, but not required for the representative of the professional divisions to have experience teaching general education courses.
Upon commencement, the committee will determine length of terms (1 or 2 years) by lot in order to ensure appropriate continuity.
III. Authority and Responsibility
The Director of General Education will communicate the recommendations of the General Education Advisory Committee to the department, division, policy committee, and/or appropriate forum for consideration and subsequent action.
The Director of General Education reports to the Provost and Vice-President for Academic Affairs.
The General Education Advisory Committee will meet monthly or as needed.
