Dr. Atkinson-Palombo to chair Environmental Literacy Task Force

Dr. Carol Atkinson-PalomboDr. Atkinson-Palombo to chair General Education Environmental Literacy Task Force for UConn Senate.

At its meeting on February 5, 2018 the Senate approved the following motion:

All University of Connecticut students will be required to take a 3-credit Environmental Literacy course as part of the General Education Requirements that will not add to the total General Education course requirement.

Consequently, the SEC established a Task Force with the following charge:

  1. Determine a model whereby Environmental Literacy can be included in the current General Education program.
  2. Recommend criteria to determine which courses may be used to meet the Environmental Literacy requirement.

The Task Force will consult with the Delta GE Task Force to help ensure that their recommendations are consistent with the longer term plans of that group and will report back to the Senate at its April 30th meeting.
