General Education Committee

GE Committe banner

Welcome to the GE Website

“Central to an Associate Degree, General Education is designed to introduce students to the variety of means through which people comprehend the modern world. It reflects the conviction of colleges, then, that those who receive their degrees must possess in common certain basic principles, concepts and methodologies both unique to and shared by the various disciplines. College educated persons must be able to use this knowledge when evaluating and appreciating the physical environment, the culture and the society in which they live. Most importantly, General Education should lead to better self-understanding.” — California Code of Regulations, Title 5, 55061

General Education is designed to enhance the lives of students in the broadest sense. A person who graduates from Los Medanos College should have well-developed reading, writing, speaking and critical thinking skills, and will mobilize these abilities in all areas of their lives, for the rest of their lives. They can ask thoughtful questions, grapple with difficult texts and concepts, reason quantitatively, consider competing perspectives, challenge arguments and question conventional ideas, evaluate sources of information, admit their own limitations, and demonstrate curiosity and a desire for continued learning.

GE Committee meetings are held 2nd and 4th Wednesdays from 1:00 - 2:25 p.m. in CC2-223 and in BRT-125 or online via Zoom for guests. Please check the agenda for meeting information.
