The current General Education Curriculum (GEC) has been in effect since 2005, with no major revision.  Given the current push, external and internal, to reduce total hours to degree completion to 120 (down from 128 for most majors), decreasing the total number of hours in general education requirements is critical to student success.  The new set of areas is called the General Education Foundations (GEF), and was approved by the WVU Faculty Senate in May 2014.
