The H&S General Education Committee welcomes feedback and ideas from faculty and departments regarding the H&S CLA requirement and/or the H&S capstone course IISP 49800.

For feedback and curriculum proposals pertaining to the requirements, SLOs, and designation processes connected to the ICC (themes and perspectives, quantitative literacy, diversity, writing intensive, capstone, and eportfolio), please contact the Committtee on College-wide Requirements.

If your department wishes to request an "Additional Option" for students in one of your major programs to satisfy the H&S CLA, please send a memorandum to the General Education Committee at hscurriculum@ithaca.edu with the following information: 

  1. detailed information demonstrating why your students cannot fulfill the ICC with the CLA in its current form — this can take the form of a "semester by semester" grid for the program showing how students fulfill the degree requirements, and where the ICC requirements, including the CLA, slot into it, or not;
  2. description of what type of Additional Option you envision for your students; and
  3. a rationale as to why/how this Additional Option meets the spirit of the H&S CLA.

For all other feedback, questions, and ideas, please complete our feedback form.
