Engagement Insights: Survey Findings on the Quality of Undergraduate Education


High-impact practices (HIPs)—such as service-learning, learning communities, internships, and study abroad—have been widely promoted by higher education leaders. While confidence in their educational benefits are high, we need to know more about their distinctive educational features and how specific HIPs contribute to student learning and success. With generous support from Lumina Foundation, CPR is pleased to announce Assessing Quality and Equity in High-Impact Practices, a project focused on facilitating the assessment of HIPs.
