General Education Refresh

The University of Arizona is currently reinventing its approach to General Education, with a timeline of unveiling the new General Education design in August 2020 and launching the General Education program in August 2021.

As we work through these changing and unusual times, the General Education Refresh Team has been working diligently to design the right general education experience for our students.

Dr. Susan Miller-Cochran is the Executive Director of the General Education Refresh Initiative, and she provides leadership to a team comprised of dozens of faculty, staff, students, and administrators representing colleges, academic units, and support programs across campus.

The team is divided into four working groups that meet weekly:

  • Infrastructure for General Education: Mondays 9:30 - 10:30am
  • Communication: Mondays 2:00 - 3:00pm
  • Quality of Teaching and Learning: Thursdays 11:00am - 12:00pm
  • Curriculum Design: Thursdays 2:00 - 3:00pm
