- Core Curriculum/General Education:
Appendix B: Course Addition Reporting Template (.doc) updated 11/11/11
Appendix C: Course Deletion Reporting Template (.doc)
Courses are proposed for general education designation by a faculty member or board of study. The Appendix B form is completed and signed by the appropriate chair or director and submitted electronically to the chair of the Educational Policies Committee (EPC), who circulates it electronically to all members of the Liberal Arts and Sciences Academic Council (LASAC) and Arts Academic Council (AAC). Academic council members have one week in which to provide feedback electronically to the EPC. The proposals are then reviewed and approved by the EPC. Approved courses are sent to the provost and dean of student success, who review and report them to the president as meeting both the faculty governance and SUNY guidelines, before forwarding them to SUNY as campus‐approved general education courses. Assessment of general education outcomes is reported to the academic councils and the EPC during the first meetings of each semester after which these data have been collected. (Policy approved at the 5/04/16 EPC meeting)
