Faculty

A commitment to the centrality of faculty and of shared governance animates all of AAC&U’s work. The organization seeks to highlight how faculty members in all fields and all types of colleges and universities are developing effective teaching and learning approaches. AAC&U programs emphasize student and faculty engagement, deep learning, and student success through liberal education.

AAC&U projects bring together faculty to develop new curricular frameworks, more engaged and effective classroom and institutional practices, and new ways to advance liberal education for all students. This work focuses attention on changing demographics, global contexts, and evolving technologies. AAC&U has made a long-term commitment to address the preparation of future faculty and the preparation of all faculty for the future.

AAC&U's meetings, publications, and projects of particular interest to faculty and all educators are linked via the bars on the right.
