with the campus communityÓ; and

broad consultation with faculty, staff, student and with the Academic Senate, the
GRTF has now produced a document that states the educational goals for the
Baccalaureate at San Francisco State University; and

Whereas The
GRTF continues to work toward re-designing the undergraduate program for the
baccalaureate degree, including a revision of the General Education program;
now, therefore, be it

and be it further
