H&S General Education Committee
The H&S General Education Committee, established in fall 2011, is the faculty committee responsible for oversight of the current General Education program in H&S, including: review of general education designation requests submitted by departments for Ithaca College courses; review of petitions for general education credit submitted by students for courses taken at other institutions; and assessment of the program. (Note that designations for the new Core Curriculum are handled by the Committee on College-wide Requirements, or CCR.)
The committee is also responsible, in coordination with the H&S Curriculum Committee, for overseeing the development and implementation of the new integrative core curriculum in H&S, specifically the Complementary Liberal Arts component of the ICC. In spring 2012, H&S faculty approved a school-wide curricular structure for H&S students to satisfy this component of the Core curriculum. The General Education Committee also developed and has responsibility for coordinating the H&S ICC Capstone course (IISP 49800), which was implemented for the first time in spring 2015.
