Guiding Principle

The General Education Program at Eastern Michigan University is the core of an undergraduate education. It is general in that it provides students with a comprehensive educational experience and prepares them for participation in a global world. General Education teaches students to think critically and communicate effectively; it provides an introduction to the methodologies and practices of the academic disciplines; and it promotes intellectual curiosity and a love of learning.

In an effort to deepen our commitment to being a learner centered resource:

If a student reaches our department with a question or problem and we cannot help, we will: 

  • Guide that student through the necessary process(es) AND
  • Facilitate contact with the relevant department or staff member AND

Continue to follow up with that student until a resolution has been reached
While we cannot always advocate on the student's behalf, nor can we guarantee a successful resolution, we will ensure that an answer is found.
