General order of
concern from Billy Clow
from Sandy Grunwald
and concerns discussed:
Should we re-structure the goals?
draft of goals is too specific
we be more inclusive of all areas?
wrong with General Education?
emphasize the Gen Ed components as a program and not a cafeteria approach
How do we
assess student learning outcomes?
re draft the goals for brevity purposes

following Organizational scheme to incorporate what we already have.

suggested that Jess Hollenbeck’s document serve as the preface for the goal
