Among the most urgent challenges facing colleges and universities today are growing economic, racial, and ethnic segregation. Increasing aversion to difference in higher education and rising distrust among communities nationally have left colleges and universities with the challenge of healing from the legacies and harm of racism. The Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) is partnering with higher education institutions to develop Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) Campus Centers to prepare the next generation of strategic leaders and critical thinkers to break down racial hierarchies and dismantle the belief in the hierarchy of human value. As a national, community-based initiative, the TRHT effort seeks to address the historical and contemporary entanglements of race and racism within our communities. Each TRHT Campus Center prioritizes inclusive, community-based healing activities that seek to change collective community narratives and broaden the understanding of our diverse experiences.Find out more »

The 2019 Institute on Integrative Learning and Signature Work is intended for college and university teams interested in advancing programs and curricula aimed at building students’ capacity to integrate their learning across the curriculum and cocurriculum, foster global learning through community engagement, and capture students’ development through signature work.

"Responding to Challenges Through Innovation”
Challenges confront higher education in virtually every part of the enterprise: funding, governance, teaching, technology, equity, outcomes, and purpose. It’s obvious that many of these challenges will not go away any time soon; indeed, if anything, the number of challenges seems to be increasing. In the academic part of the system, critical challenges include helping under-prepared students, designing intrusive and effective advising, creating pathways that students understand, tracking and responding to student progress, creating engaging learning environments, assessing and increasing learning outcomes, designing a coherent general education curriculum, developing more contemporary majors, designing effective, early career planning, and a host of other issues.
