General Education

Page address:

State agencies, governmental bodies, disciplinary accrediting groups, and national and regional accrediting groups all require information about the learning outcomes of students at Minnesota State Mankato. More importantly, faculty in departments offering general education courses need to know if students are learning what is being taught in the general education courses. Additionally, the University needs to know if the general education program (not individual faculty or individual courses) is meeting its stated objectives. Finally, as with all assessment, the over-arching purpose is to improve student learning.
