In March 2010, for the first time in RIT's history, a General Education Committee (GEC) was established as a standing committee of the Academic Senate to provide faculty oversight for general education. The committee reviews curriculum and general education course proposals from a university-wide perspective to maintain appropriate inter-college relationships with regard to general education matters. This committee ensures that there is ongoing monitoring and assessment of the general education courses and there is an ongoing review of the general education curriculum framework to determine any need for modification.
The GEC includes faculty representatives from each of the nine colleges, the Council of Deans, Academic Senate, the Provost's Office, and the Assistant Provost for Assessment and Accreditation. Click here to go to the Academic Senate website for the list of GEC Committee members
