Grant Summary

$230,000 over 25 months for Union College, Gettysburg College, and Washington and Lee University propose to move forward with campus-based projects to: (1) help students connect academic and co-curricular experiences as a way of promoting a cohesive understanding of liberal education, and (2) implement practices for measuring and sustaining these activities in order to foster long-term improvements in student learning. The three institutions comprising this ad hoc collaborative plan to share qualitative and quantitative data from their projects and strategies for success with one another. They also plan on presenting at the Association of American Colleges & Universities national meeting as a means of sharing information with other institutions interested in adopting similar programmatic initiatives.
