Apply through March 4, 2015

Through Liberal Education and America’s Promise (LEAP), AAC&U has articulated a set of Principles of Excellence for 21st-century college learning.  The first principle is to “Aim High—and Make Excellence Inclusive.”  This Institute helps campuses, higher education systems, and consortia achieve inclusive excellence and advance goals related to engagement, inclusion, and success for all students.  Campus teams of five individuals representing both academic and student affairs perspectives are invited to apply for participation in a program that follows four primary tracks: 
  • high-impact and highly effective educational practices and pedagogies;
  • problem-focused, evidence-based work for deep learning and degree attainment;
  • methods of building and scaling up student success initiatives; and
  • the politics of change.
Once accepted, teams use their time together to discover new approaches and to create and rehearse action plans to achieve their particular campus goals in a program that provides:  
  • daily team time to work on action plans;
  • individual team consultations with Institute faculty;
  • plenary sessions, facilitated discussions, and interactions with other campus teams; and
  • reflection and skill-building sessions.
