General Education

BGSU considers future of general education

A group of faculty gathered in the Bowen-Thompson Student Union Feb. 11 to hear the results of a review of the University’s general education program and to begin the discussion about possible next steps. The resulting conversation revealed that, in the eyes of faculty, general education cannot be considered in isolation but must be part of the total picture of undergraduate education and, indeed, the University’s very identity.

Drs. Richard Keeling and Richard Hersh of Keeling and Associates presented findings from their study of the program’s curriculum, policy and requirements, and from intensive interviews conducted with faculty, staff and students during a visit in January.
