Committee on General Education

In May of 2009, the University Committee on General Education was formed by the Provost and the chair of the Undergraduate Council, as a subcommittee of the Undergraduate Council. The charge of this committee was to assess and reconsider the Stony Brook General Education Curriculum (commonly known as DEC—The Diversified Education Curriculum). Membership of the committee was initially selected by the Provost and the Undergraduate Council and featured a broad base of pedagogical and administrative experience. Over time the committee was expanded at the discretion of its chairs in consultation with the committee’s full membership and the Undergraduate Council. There were two sequential committees, the first primarily to discuss the underlying theory issued their report in July, 2011, and the second issued this report in June, 2012, as a revision to the first report.
