Vision and Goals

We envision a nationally-recognized interdisciplinary research center focused on transformative change in post-secondary education. Anticipated opening date is January 2014.

  • The center will be a focal point for WMU faculty to engage in interdisciplinary collaborative research related to facilitating change in post-secondary education. Affiliated researchers will come from throughout the WMU community.
  • The center will serve as a research home for graduate students in existing PhD programs interested in building their scholarly agenda in the area.
  • The center will provide support and capacity building for WMU PIs who wish to write grants related to instructional change in postsecondary education.
