CHAPTER 12. NJIT GENERAL EDUCATION
This chapter addresses Standard 12 of the Characteristics of Excellence in Higher Education: General Education.
In order to produce graduates who have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to advance the state-of-the-art knowledge in their respective fields, all students participate in coursework fulfilling the General University Requirements (GUR). The GUR requirements are intended to provide educational experiences harmoniously attuned to the mission of NJIT. Completion of the GUR is a necessary step in the fulfillment of the implicit intellectual and social contract that NJIT has with its students and its local, national and global shareholders. A process of collaborative review is used to update, monitor, and modernize the GUR.
