Biographical/Historical note

Washington State University’s General Education Visioning Committee was created in 2008 with representatives from a dozen campus departments. The Provost’s Office charged the committee to provide “a vision and strategy” for General Education within a year.

Prior to this committee, WSU’s model of General Education was a compromise model that embodied strengths of different models current in the 1980s, derived from an intensive study of general education models of the time. Based on the GEVC’s conclusions, in 2011 the University approved a new UCORE (University Common Requirements) program.
