Recent meetings with the Provost Ellen Junn have sparked discussions that some general education classes may soon be offered online. “What we have proposed is an innovative course on global challenges that will be offered in hybrid mode, partly online and partly in a large lecture in an auditorium with tutoring groups and online discussion groups to support it,” said Dennis Jaehne, associate vice president of undergraduate studies. “I would love it,” said Yesenia Solis, a junior interior design major. “I feel like general education courses take away from focusing on your careers. They have nothing to do with it. They feel like two different entities.”  There has been discussion of creating general education classes online in an effort to save the school approximately $1 million per semester.
