ABOUT THE INITIATIVE

In February 2021, the Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR) approved a new policy regarding general education at ABOR universities. Policy 2-210 requires Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, and the University of Arizona to redesign their general education programs. In light of the new ABOR policy, advances in both general education strategies and guided pathways, and emerging 21st-century skills, the AZTransfer Steering Committee is leading an effort to reimagine the structure and requirements of the Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC).

The AGEC has been an important tool for promoting student learning and effective transfer since it was created in the mid-1990s, and preserving this mechanism is critical. However, the structure and components of the AGEC have not substantially evolved since their creation nearly 30 years ago. This change introduces an opportunity for Arizona’s community and tribal colleges to bring the AGEC up-to-date in a way that will enhance student learning.
