Abstract/Description: Much of the literature in general education is focused on the design or contents of the program, or the "supply side," while little attention has been given to students' understandings of and attitudes toward general education, the "demand side." This paper reviews literature on the "demand side" of general education by first providing a brief synopsis of the notion of general education and recent recommendations for reform, and next summarizing research on student knowledge of and attitudes toward higher education and general education. Because of the paucity of "demand side" research, the paper shifts focus to processes used in higher education to affect demand side questions, including teaching, recruitment and admissions, orientation, academic and career advising, and course scheduling. The paper ends with conclusions on the importance of attending to "demand side" issues in the improvement of general education programs.
