AASCU 2018: Opportunities Disguised as Challenges

Who’s best positioned to impact student success? Our faculty.

As George L. Mehaffy, AASCU’s VP for academic leadership and change, noted in a recent Chronicle report, there’s a “glaring ‘donut hole’ in many colleges’ plans: what happens in the classroom. We don’t spend a lot of time thinking about that as a key component [when] the place we know [students are] going to be is class.”

ACUE is closing this gap. We prepare, credential, and support faculty to teach with the practices that improve student achievement. Together with faculty at partner colleges and universities nationwide, we’re providing students with an extraordinary education.

At AASCU’s Academic Affairs Summer Meeting this month, ACUE’s Chief Academic Officer Penny MacCormack will be facilitating a session “The ‘Who’ in Student Success: Faculty as the Agents of Change” with faculty from some of our partner institutions: Rutgers University-Newark, Purdue University Northwest, and Northern Arizona University. The panelists will discuss the changes they’re making to their teaching and how these changes are positively impacting their students. They’ll also share how their institutions are putting faculty and teaching at the heart of their success strategies.

We hope to see you in Seattle on July 26!
