Creating Solutions for Our Future through Students' Signature Work


Featured Session
Friday October 9, 2015 4:30pm to 6:30pm

As part of marking its Centennial Year, AAC&U launched the LEAP Challenge—the next stage in AAC&U’s Liberal Education and America’s Promise initiative designed to prepare students to do Signature Work—integrating and applying their learning to the unscripted challenges of our fast-changing global society. How can we ensure that liberal education works at peak for all college students, whatever their background, educational goals, and intended careers?  This forum will showcase students’ stories about the kinds of learning in college that matters to them and examine how institutions can foster programmatic, integrative, and scaffolded approaches to problem-based learning for all students.

AAC&U gratefully acknowledges the foundations that have provided support for our Centennial Year dialogues about Liberal Education, Global Flourishing, and the Equity Imperative, and about The LEAP Challenge—Carnegie Corporation of New York, The Charles Engelhard Foundation, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, The Kresge Foundation, Lumina Foundation, Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, and The Teagle Foundation.
