President Maimon Praises AAC&U in Inside Higher Ed Article

President Elaine Maimon is quoted in an Inside Higher Ed article that illuminates the work of the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U). The AAC&U represents 1,300 institutions, ranging from community colleges to research universities, including GSU.

The article, “AAC&U's Moderate, Strong Voice on Competency-Based Education and Disruption,” gives an inside look at the association, and its Liberal Education and America’s Promise (LEAP) program, which promotes Essential Learning Outcomes; Principles of Excellence; High-Impact Educational Practices; Authentic Assessments, and Student’s Signature Work.

President Maimon praises the work of the AAC&U in the story, saying that “AAC&U really helps to translate some of the values and principles of the academy at its best.”
