A Vision for Equity: Results from AAC&U's Project "Committing to Equity and Inclusive Excellence: Campus-Based Strategies for Student Success"

Offers practical examples, models, data, and resources for campuses seeking to provide an equitable education to all students. In the chapters, each campus outlines how they sought to build internal capacity to address inequities in student outcomes and narrow equity gaps through the following objectives: (1) increased access to and participation in high-impact practices (HIPs); (2) increased completion, retention, and graduation rates for low-income students, first-generation students, adult learners, and minoritized students; (3) increased achievement of learning outcomes for underserved students using direct assessment measures, including AAC&U’s Valid Assessment of Learning in Undergraduate Education (VALUE) rubrics; and (4) increased student awareness and understanding of the value of guided learning pathways that incorporate HIPs for workforce preparation and engaged citizenship.
