The General Education Committee is responsible for the oversight of the General Education Program and is a standing committee of the University (Bylaws Article 14.6.3). The voting members of the committee consist of a constituency of faculty members from all NIU colleges with undergraduate degree programs, and three undergraduate students. As part of its responsibilities, the committee reviews and revises the program goals as needed. In addition, the committee selects courses for the program that are consistent with the general education goals. For inclusion in the program, courses must be submitted for a comprehensive review by the committee, using the General Education Course Submission/Resubmission Form.
