  • Committee Overview

  • The Expanding and Enhancing the Learning Environment cluster chairs, Jennifer Karas and Danny McIntosh, worked with the academic units, Faculty Senate and Campus Life & Inclusive Excellence to create this committee.  They invited all deans to nominate potential members, and self-nominations were also solicited.

    From Doug Hesse's first email to the Committee: 

    "We will be utterly consultative with constituencies on campus, most centrally the faculty; thoroughly informed by best thought and practice on general education across the country, both in the professional literature and in campus practice; absolutely attentive to the unique mission, position, and resources at DU; grounded in analyses of our current general education program, our campus contexts and aspirations; and open to a range of intelligent possible outcomes, with nothing predetermined at the outset.  (Pragmatism must surely and ultimately inflect any recommendations, but its entry can productively be delayed.)"
    More information? Please see the October 18, 2017, "GERI Letter to DU Faculty," a copy of which is included below.  Or contact Doug Hesse: or 1-7447.
