A small undergraduate liberal arts college explored a model, grounded in the literature, to develop a shared vision for its science and math general education curriculum that
focuses on scientific literacy skills. This process has allowed the authors to produce shared general education learning goals across eight science and math departments, conduct voluntary “best practices” workshops with a broad swath of
faculty, and assess students’ science and math attitudes and scientific literacy. It has also fostered interdisciplinary grant-writing teams to solicit external funding.
