UNO General Education Task Force


Welcome to the University of Nebraska at Omaha General Education website. In Spring 2010, the faculty adopted a new approach to University General Education to ensure that UNO’s general education program is student-centered, aligned with the student learning outcomes desired of all UNO graduates, and assessable. The faculty created a University General Education Committee consisting of one representative from each college (determined by the college). The University General Education Committee is responsible for (1) establishing the definition, criteria, and learning outcomes for each university general education areas; (2) reviewing syllabi and approving courses used to satisfy university general education requirements, and (3) facilitating on-going review, assessment, and modification of the university general education curriculum.
