AAC&U Funds

  • This fund supports AAC&U’s advocacy for liberal education and inclusive excellence.


  • This fund supports presidential initiatives at AAC&U emerging from our strategic plan, Equity, Innovation, and Excellence.


  • This fund supports the work of the TRHT Campus Centers, designed to help higher education institutions identify evidence-based strategies that support the vision of what their communities will look, feel, and be like when the false belief in a hierarchy of human value no longer exists.


  • This fund supports the innovative and creative work of Project Kaleidoscope to transform undergraduate STEM teaching and learning.


  • This fund supports all aspects of Project Kaleidoscope’s STEM Leadership Institutes, designed for early- and mid-career STEM faculty, principal investigators, and administrators who are engaged in leading initiatives and interventions aimed at transforming undergraduate STEM education in their classrooms, departments, and institutions.


  • In honor of L. Lee Knefelkamp’s enduring legacy, this fund supports national and campus programming that fosters meaningful connections between student and campus success.


  • This fund supports the work of the Institute for Democracy and Higher Education (IDHE), which studies and provides resources to support student learning for, and institutional engagement, in democracy. This includes better ways to “talk politics,” turn conflict and elections into “teachable moments,” and engage students in a process of redesigning and defending a more aspirational democracy, one that works for everyone.
