The Institute on Integrative Learning and Signature Work is intended for colleges and universities interested in developing faculty and staff leadership to advance programs and curricula that build students’ capacity to integrate their learning—across general education, majors, and the cocurriculum, as well as prior professional, academic, and life experiences inside and outside the classroom.

Each team applying to the Institute will propose an educational change project specific to its own institution, and will commit to developing and supporting faculty leadership for student learning within and across departments—as well as within and across academic and student affairs—focused on integrative and global learning leading to signature work. Teams will leave the Institute having developed action plans for achieving their specific goals. Expert faculty and other teams will provide initial feedback on the plans at the Institute.

Today’s college graduates must be able to apply the knowledge and skills they are learning in real-world contexts to address complex and urgent problems. The Institute provides practical guidance, mentoring, and resources for campus teams working to achieve this goal.
