General Education: A Focus for the 90's. The Foundation.
Bunker Hill Community Coll., Boston, MA.
In the fall of 1989, the president of Massachusetts' Bunker Hill Community College (BHCC) called for volunteers to serve on a General Education (GE) Task Force which would review the state of GE at the College. The task force conducted a literature search and surveys of BHCC faculty and students, as well as other community colleges. The result of the task force's efforts, along with those of the College's GE Review Steering Committee, was a report which launched BHCC's overall effort to reform its curriculum. In the fall of 1990, the entire college community was involved in providing insights concerning the report's findings and recommendations. Based on the input from all segments of BHCC, the Steering Committee prepared this revised report for the spring 1991 term. The report provides the followng sections: chapter 1 reviews the history of GE in the United States; chapter 2 defines key terminology used in the discussion of General Education and community colleges in the State of Massachusetts; chapter 3 presents the goals of GE at BHCC; and chapter 4 offers recommendations for the implementation of the GE program at BHCC. Appendixes provide the text of the 1990 Massachusetts Commonwealth Transfer Compact, a glossary, a GE review organizational chart, and a list of BHCC community participants in the GE review during the summer and fall 1990 terms. A 105-item bibliography is attached. (JMC)
