Recognizing that equity must be intrinsic to quality, the 2017 Institute on High-Impact Practices and Student Success is designed to help campus- and system-based teams devise equitable, integrative, learning-centered pathways that deeply connect with the assets students bring to college. Teams will work with Institute faculty to define and develop approaches to learning that are highly engaging to students and that result in more equitable outcomes. Drawing on evidence-based research that demonstrates a positive relationship between student participation in high-impact practices (HIPs) and improved student outcomes, the Institute’s purpose is to integrate and transform curricular and cocurricular practices to support higher levels of student success. The Institute will also connect high-impact teaching and learning practices to issues affecting campus climate and student well-being. The Institute program is ideal for institutions at various stages of work, and it addresses ambitious goals for improving both completion rates and the quality of student learning.
