University Wide Committees

The Faculty Senate appoints senators or faculty to a number of university wide committees. The terms of the committee seats are set in each committee's operating papers and depending on the time when the appointments are made, each of the terms may expire at different times during the year. Thus, the appointments are made sporadically throughout the year. (last update May 9, 2014)

General Education Committee
SIUE's General Education Program-the Lincoln Program-plays a significant, foundational and guiding role in preparing students to meet the standards contained above in the Objectives of the Baccalaureate Degree. Why is it called the Lincoln Program? There are several ways in which Abraham Lincoln embodies the purposes of baccalaureate education at SIUE. Mostly self educated, he took responsibility for his own education and this experience instilled in him a deep-seated respect for learning. Lincoln understood that education has utility and value for both the individual and the society.
