Resolution to Temporarily Suspend GE Segment Committees and

Amend the General Education Council’s Charge

WHEREAS San Francisco State University is in the midst of a major review of its baccalaureate graduation requirements by the Graduation Requirements Task Force, including general education; and

WHEREAS The General Education Council is unlikely to entertain proposals for major changes to the general education curriculum until that review is complete; and

WHEREAS The remaining business that is likely to come before the General Education Council does not warrant review by both the existing segment committees and the General Education Council; therefore be it

RESOLVED By the Academic Senate of San Francisco State University that the General Education segment committees’ activities be suspended until the Graduation Requirements Task Force completes its report; and be it further

RESOLVED That during this period the General Education Council be charged with reviewing proposed changes that would have formerly been the responsibility of the General Education segment committees.

***Unanimously Approved by the Academic Senate at its meeting on November 7, 2006***
