From Mission to Action to Evidence:
Empowering and Inclusive General Education Programs
A Network for Academic Renewal Conference
February 19-21, 2015
Kansas City, Missouri
Proposals Due Monday, July 14, 2014
The Association of American Colleges and Universities is pleased to announce the Call for Proposals for the 2015 general education and assessment conference From Mission to Action to Evidence: Empowering and Inclusive General Education Programs. We encourage proposals that show how campuses are bringing Principles of Excellence in line with Essential Learning Outcomes and high-impact educational practices to prepare all students for the global, multifaceted, and scientifically challenging context in which they will live and work. Proposals reflecting this kind of work might describe models of integrative, cumulative, and campus community collaboration. Finally, we invite proposals that address policies and practices that support faculty innovation and leadership to strengthen students’ abilities to integrate, transfer, and apply their knowledge to enhance the quality of their own lives and advance the common good.
