Name: Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning

Historical Note:

The Academic Affairs Committee of the Kansas State University Faculty Senate appointed a committee in 1986 to address administration and faculty concerns about a lack of understanding among undergraduates of core competencies.  This committee reviewed the current general education standards at K-State, and the following year another committee defined what skills and knowledge students should have at graduation.  A third committee was formed in 1988 and used data gathered by the previous committee to propose changes to the Common University Degree Requirements.

In 1991, Provost James Coffman, with the support of the Faculty Senate, began a project to create a University General Education (U.G.E.) plan for K-State students based on the 1988 committee's proposal.  This plan was approved and implemented in 1994 with planned assessments to the program occurring periodically.

By the mid-2000s, the University General Education program needed to be revised.  The General Education Task Force was set up in 2006 to address these needs.  In 2008 a proposal was given to the Faculty Senate, in 2009 the proposal for K-State 8 was approved, and in 2011 K-State 8 was implemented.
