The Institute on General Education and Assessment provides campus teams with opportunities to refine and advance general education programs and their assessment. The Institute conveys a deep and abiding commitment to ensuring that access to excellence in higher education is available to all students, striving toward a vision of education that is energized by students’ multiple and intersecting identities. This vision of education is committed also to making the inextricable synergy between quality and equity the standard for excellence in undergraduate educational practice.
During the Institute, teams will explore designing equity-minded approaches to integrating general education with the major, demonstrating the centrality of general education in connecting student learning with critical social issues that matter to students and society, and that are intentionally aligned with the Essential Learning Outcomes identified through AAC&U’s LEAP (Liberal Education and America’s Promise) initiative.
Drawing from what they learn over the course of the Institute, teams will develop action plans for continuing their work upon returning to campus. Action plans address strategies for next steps, relevant stakeholders to engage, and a timeline for achieving goals.
