ePortfolios, digital repositories of student work, have been transforming students' educational experiences for two decades. The Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) has long advocated ePortfolio adoption throughout higher education.
This LEAP project is designed to further existing knowledge about the relationship between high-impact practices and underserved student success. Funded by TG Philanthropy and part of AAC&U’s Making Excellence Inclusive and The LEAP Challenge initiatives, this campus-based research project provided insights into the effects of problem-centered curricular designs, particularly integrative learning in general education programs, and transparent teaching practices on underserved students’ learning and success.
General Education for a Global Century is a Curriculum and Faculty Development Project of the Shared Futures: Global Learning and Social Responsibility initiative and the Liberal Education and America’s Promise (LEAP) initiative.
The Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) is conducting a research project, funded by the TG Philanthropy Program, to examine undergraduate data from universities across the three Compass state systems (California State University System, Oregon University System, and University of Wisconsin System). The project investigates the impact of engaged learning on traditionally underrepresented populations, specifically first-generation, minority, and low-income students.
Working individually on campus and collectively in regional affinity clusters, nine teams will develop long-term plans for developing sustained and self-renewing faculty leadership for the cumulative aims and outcomes of integrative liberal learning across the curriculum.
