The School of General Studies has been trying to change its name for decades now. I thought this might be a good place to throw around some ideas.
General studies really is such an unfortunate name. It’s akin to PA standing for Physician Assistant. It degrades the value that actually exists within the school and field.
Perhaps General Studies could be renamed: Columbia school of Earheart. That would maybe give it a bit of a historical feeling of prestige? I’m not sure.
