Reports & Data
Assessing the efficacy of general education curriculum is a lengthy process that necessitates the collection of significant amounts of data. On this page, we'd like to share updates and reports of progress, and eventually, summaries of data collected regarding faculty, staff, adminstrator, and student views of general education at MTSU. We share this information with the hope of maintaining an open, transparent conversation across campus and beyond regarding the potential for curriculum redesign.
