This committee is reforming the general education curriculum at ECU.


The committee will be seeking feedback from a variety of different stakeholders: faculty, students, staff, and members of the Ada community.
The committee will post updates and resources about the general education revision project here (current requirements, pamphlets about reforming general education, where we are at in the process, etc.).
