High-Impact Educational Practices: What They Are and Why They Matter to Students

Thursday, April 5, 2018

3:00 p.m.
Gasson Hall 100

Join educator, author, and nationally recognized scholar George Kuh for a presentation on high-impact educational practices and how they contribute to student success. Kuh is the founding director of the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment and the chancellor's professor emeritus at Indiana University, and serves on the National Leadership Council for the Association of American Colleges and Universities' Liberal Education and America's Promise initiative. He is the founding director of the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), which has surveyed over 6 million students across 1,600 institutions since 2000.

Through his work, Kuh has demonstrated that high-impact educational practices (which include pursuing internships, becoming involved in learning communities, studying abroad, and conducting undergraduate research, among others) enrich student learning and help students thrive in college. He has written extensively about student engagement, assessment, institutional improvement, and college and university cultures, and consulted with more than 350 colleges and universities within the U.S. and abroad.


This event is free and open to the Boston College community and the public.
