Faculty in the General Education Division as well as the VPISA and the ABE Division Manager
continue to participate in the statewide initiative to reform general education. Throughout
the planning process, committees established skill competencies and knowledge objectives
for math, English, sciences, social sciences and humanities that ensures transferability of
courses across Idaho institutions of higher learning. Courses that meet the established
criteria are now stamped as General Education Matriculation (GEM) classes. These
committees have also assisted the Idaho State Board of Education in rewriting policies
related to general education requirements for degree programs.
The Adult Basic Education (ABE) Division Manager represents the state ABE region on the
