Dear Commons Community,
Manfred Philipp, our colleague at Lehman College and past chair of the University Faculty Senate, has sent out an email alerting us to the Board of Trustees pending actions vis-a-vis general education requirements. A website is available that provides a recap of the new Gen Ed proposal as well as resolutions from a number of CUNY faculty governing bodies and the Professional Staff Congress. CUNY’s Board of Trustees deliberations will be watched as it moves closer to voting on this important issue. Beyond general education and college transfer policies, at stake are shared governance prerogatives in matters of academic policy and curricula. See my previous posts on this issue.
