The GE Implementation Task Force Will Update This Section As We Recieve Your Questions
Q: Can a course be included in two GE 5 Knowledge and Skills areas? For instance, we have a GE 4 United States Studies (USST) course that carries the Diversity graduation designation. In GE 5, can this course carry the US History and Global Awareness and Diversity: Equity, Inclusion, and Social Justice designations?
A: No. Our GE program does not allow a single course to be in two GE Knowledge and Skills areas.
Major Course Revision Form
Q: My department is proposing our Diversity course, now a graduation requirement, for GE 5. Which of the following should I check: “Revising a GE 3 / GE 4 Course for Approval in an Analogous GE 5 Category” or “Revising a non-GE Course for Approval in any GE 5 Category”?
A: Please check “Revising a GE 3 / GE 4 Course for Approval in an Analogous GE 5 Category.” While it is true that Diversity courses are not in GE 4, we consider proposals to include current Diversity courses in the new GE 5 Diversity: Equity, Inclusion, and Social Justice area as an “analogous” transfer.
Q: The GE 5 Major Course Revision form asks for an “explanation” of how my course meets the SLOs of the relevant Knowledge and Skills area. How long does my explanation need to be?
A: Your explanation should be 1-3 sentences per SLO. If anyone needs more information, they will get in touch with you or your department chair. If you want to write more, you are welcome to do so.
