Faculty Participation in the Development and Improvement of General Education


by Jacob Van Ek - 1952

Although the purpose of a general-education program is to provide an improved type of education for students, faculty participation in the development and improvement of such a program is inevitably a venture in the education of the faculty that undertakes it. Unfortunately, the undertaking of the project has resulted in serious rifts in some faculties. In a few instances, as a result of the differences of opinion which have emerged in the process of the development of a program of general education, some faculty members have felt it necessary to resign from the college or university of which they were members. For the most part, however, the collective activity of the faculty in the development and improvement of a general-education program has been a force for binding the faculty more closely together through their working at a common task. In such situations, their co- operative endeavor has been a stimulating experience to individual members of the faculty and has resulted in a clarification of the goals of the college.
