Okay, I've got the slogan: It's an education, not just a diploma. What we need to do know is show how students are really getting an education. If we want our graduates to be: creative, critical thinkers, rational thinkers, problems solvers, and understanding of other cultures and points of view, how do we get there? What is it we do or should do that will be more than a menu? Does this involve reorganization? Does this involve curricular changes? Let's talk.

Four suggestions:

1. More support for WAC activities
2. Creation of Integrative Intiatives between departments
3. Stating college-wide learning objectives
4. Expecting students to demonstrate these objectives in a graduation portfolio

And overall, not letting these ideas get bogged down by committees and parliamentary procedures.
