GEACC Members and Meeting Minutes

GEACC Membership

NVCC's General Education requirements are reviewed and assessed by the General Education Assessment and Curriculum design Committee (GEACC). This committee is composed of one library representative, one student representative, and 10 faculty as well as non-voting members from the Registrar, the Office of Institutional Research, and the Dean of Academic Affairs. The committee must have at least one member with expertise in each competency area, and each academic division must have at least one, and no more than 3, members. In order to ensure representation across the college community and to provide continuity for assessment, Committee members are elected by each academic division and serve a minimum 2-year term. The duties of the committee include identifying and approving college courses used to fulfill competency requirements. The committee is also responsible for researching, scheduling and assisting in the implementation of assessment methods to determine if students are achieving competency outcomes. Committee members for the 2016-2017 academic year are listed below alongside the competency areas they oversee:
