GenEd(it) Revision Update

submitted by

Dear Augsburg Community,

Welcome to the first general education revision initiative bi-weekly update!

The General Education Advisory Group, a representative team of faculty, staff and student members, was convened this spring and charged with reviewing our current general education curriculum and proposing revisions by December 2023.

You will find information about the general education revision initiative in the General Education Revision 2023 community Moodle page and Google Drive. Please feel free to share your questions and suggestions in the GenEd(it) Comment Box. These resources are linked below.

We will consult widely on our collective efforts to revise our general education curriculum and look forward to hearing from you.

With gratitude,

The General Education Advisory Group (aka GenEd(it) Group)
