Sonoma State GE Revision Project

In Fall 2017, prompted by persistent problems with Sonoma State University's currrent General Education (GE) program and by the issuance of CSU Executive Orders 1100 and 1110, SSU's Academic Senate Executive Committee initiated a campuswide process of revising GE at SSU.  GE revision was the focus of the January 2018 Faculty Retreat.  In March 2018, the Academic Senate Executive Committee created the GE Revision Subcommittee (GERS), under the Educational Policies Committee (EPC), to undertake the process of revising SSU's GE program.
