The General Education program at Weber State University is supervised by the Faculty Senate General Education Assessment and Improvement Committee.
The Utah System of Higher Education coordinates general efforts statewide. The latest comprehensive statement of statewide objectives was in 1999.
The General Education Improvement and Assessment committee (formed in 2006) crafted general education objectives specific to Weber State.
Currently, the General Education committee is working to align overall outcomes in each of the core and breadth areas with a test or portfolio that will be "embedded" in each General Education class, so that we may determine the efficacy of individual program elements.
