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 »

Working in environments where time and space to reflect on leadership is often short, participants will gain the support, structure and advice to explore their leadership skills and consider how they can flourish using these as a new specialism.

Fundamental to this model is the idea of 'connecting people with purpose'. It explores four key intelligences through theory and practical application, these are; emotional intelligence, social and political intelligence, cultural (or narrative) intelligence and inclusive intelligence.

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. Institute sessions led by national experts will emphasize the value of leveraging general education, interdisciplinary approaches, and cocurricular experiences to achieve campus goals to expand integrative learning and community engagement. The Institute recognizes that today’s college graduates must be able to integrate knowledge and skills, as well as apply them within in real-world, global contexts. In doing so, campuses have the opportunity to reexamine and refresh their civic missions to support equity, student learning, and preparation for full civic lives and careers. The Institute also supports campuses to embed signature work in reform efforts as a way to promote equity, authentic assessment, and student inquiry.Find out more »
