NAC&U 2014 Summer Institute
The New American Colleges & Universities (NAC&U) 2014 Summer Institute will take place from June 23 to 27 at the University of Redlands. The University will welcome over 120 representatives from approximately 20 NAC&U institutions for several days of networking, professional development, and discussions of important topics in higher education including civic engagement, online learning, and the future of scholarship. The University of Redlands was a founding member of the New American Colleges and Universities in 1995, a national consortium of selective, small to mid-size colleges and universities dedicated to the integration of liberal education, professional studies, and civic engagement.
For 2014, the Summer Institute will focus on a new initiative, the New American Academic Community (NAAC), which provides exciting opportunities for students and faculty by fostering unique collaboration among NAC&U members. NAAC’s operational assumption that “my student is your student” is the key to its success, allowing members to leverage their collective assets to the benefit of all NAC&U students and institutions.
Over the course of the Summer Institute, meetings, presentations, and activities will take place in different locations around campus, including the Orton Center, Casa Loma Room, Stauffer Center Courtyard, and Alumni House. “The University of Redlands is proud to host the 18th annual New American Colleges and Universities Summer Institute,” Interim Provost David Fite said. “This event will highlight the outstanding faculty, staff, students, and programs of our University, and the warmth and hospitality of our campus community.”
