Faculty & Advisor Information

The University of Idaho's General Education Curriculum is a broad-based, interdisciplinary, multi-year, vertically integrated, liberal arts educational experience. It is a curriculum that began with the work of faculty and staff members of the General Education Steering Committee.

These efforts included review of national "best practices," peer institutions, the Idaho State Board of Education's general education guidelines (as reflected in the General Education Matriculation "GEM" criteria), and the University of Idaho's unique role and mission. The general education recommendations of these committees have been reviewed and approved by the University Committee on General Education, University Curriculum Committee, Faculty Senate and full faculty.
