Project Kaleidoscope (PKAL) — Advancing what works in STEM education

Mission & Goals

Project Kaleidoscope (PKAL) is AAC&U’s center of STEM higher education reform dedicated to empowering STEM faculty, including those from underrepresented groups, to graduate more students in STEM fields who are competitively trained and liberally educated. PKAL also works to develop a scientifically literate citizenry as part of its commitment to principles and practices central to AAC&U’s Liberal Education and America’s Promise (LEAP) initiative.

Since its founding in 1989, PKAL has been one of the leading advocates in the United States for transforming undergraduate STEM teaching and learning. It has to date empowered an extensive network of over 7,000 STEM faculty and administrators committed to the principles, practices, and partnerships that advance cutting-edge, integrative STEM higher education for all students. To that end, all PKAL undertakings are uniquely designed to foster quality, diversity, and social responsibility.
