On behalf of SAAB and the Curriculum Committee, I would like to extend my thanks to all those who showed up to discuss General Education at Lewis & Clark on this last Friday, January 22nd. The discussion brought up tons of great points, put some workable ideas on the table, and helped inform SAAB members how to best proceed in the process of GE reform and represent the student body.
Notes from the discussion are available here. The notes are unsorted—just in the order of when they came up in discussion, for the most part. I spent the meeting writing down these points, so my own personal bias may have crept in here and there. If you would like to comment on any of the points or how I transcribed them, you may comment on the form, or email me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This was the first event of several this semester where students and faculty will discuss how best to proceed with General Education Reform. I, for one, wholeheartedly appreciate the involvement I have seen so far from the student body. To get involved or keep involved in the discussion, get in touch with your department’s SAAB rep! They are one of the best resources available to you.
