The Task Force on General Education was convened in the Spring of 2007 by Jane Bowers, who was then Dean of Undergraduate Studies and is now Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs. Dr. Bowers charged the group to study General Education at John Jay, at our sister CUNY campuses, and at colleges and universities around the country and to produce a report to the community that would help us to assess the status of our nearly four-decades-old General Education program in the contexts of a national General Education reform movement and a parallel CUNY-wide initiative. This report is the result of the Task Force’s research and deliberations. It does not propose a new or modified curriculum but rather lays out an array of issues and options that may guide curricular development.
