Conducting a Policy Audit: A Webinar from the Quality Collaboratives

An hour-long webinar hosted jointly by AAC&U and the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS) as part of the Quality Collaboratives project. National experts discuss the connections and contradictory tensions produced in a higher education environment marked by competing demands, agendas, and a host of sometimes outdated policies and assumptions. This webinar presents the basic ideas and steps involved in conducting a "policy audit" to reveal how the policies and practices at an institution or within a system either support or undercut critical student success goals or initiatives specific to curricular, transfer, and assessment reforms.
