AACU Announces Greater Expectations Institute

The American Association of Colleges and Universities (AACU) has just announced the dates for its Greater Expectations Institute. The Institute will be held from June 21 – 25, 2006 in Snowbird, Utah. The Institute is an intensive program designed for campus teams working on ways to increase student engagement, inclusion, and high achievement. Teams will align institutional purposes, structures, and practices as well as advance and assess the kinds of liberal education outcomes outlined in AAC&U’s Greater Expectations report. The Institute provides a resource-rich setting that offers significant team time; framing plenaries; workshops; consultations with expert faculty; interaction with other teams; and the opportunity to develop a concrete action plan for departmental, divisional, or campus-wide action. The application deadline is March 17, 2006. For information or to apply online, visit aacu.org/meetings/gexinstitute. Or email or call Misha Charles with questions: Charles@aacu.org; tel. 202.387.3760 x407.
