General Education Committee members

At its meeting of November 21, 1996 the University Academic Planning Council (UAPC) assigned the overall academic administration of the campus-wide General Education Requirements to the College of Letters and Science to act as trustee on behalf of all schools and colleges. The College of Letters and Science formed a General Education Committee to serve as an advisory body for this purpose. Dr. Elaine M. Klein (, L&S Associate Dean of Academic Planning, chairs this committee and coordinates General Education efforts for the campus.
