General Education

The General Education committee provides for ongoing review of Southwestern's general education competencies, how they are taught in Arts and Sciences courses and reinforced in program courses, and how the results of general education competency assessment are used to improve teaching and learning. The committee is led by Arts and Sciences faculty and administration and includes members from each academic division to ensure cross-functional communication and decision-making.
