Undergraduate Education


We are participating in a Learning Community Cluster with 13 other institutions. Through deep engagement with colleagues across the country, we are asking a fundamental question: What would it take for institutions to make a comprehensive shift from deficit- to achievement-oriented frameworks in their approaches to the introductory science experience?

2022 Advising Initiative

Our vision, as articulated in The 2030 Plan, is to “ensure that students receive the advising and support they need to thrive on Grounds and beyond.” The Advising Task Force was convened to closely examine undergraduate advising at the University in order to understand where we are, where we aspire to be, and how we may reach our aspirations. The Task Force Report articulates a vision for undergraduate advising and a set of recommendations to realize our aspirations.
