Emerge Initiative

The College of Professional Studies is committed to providing intellectually engaging and effective educational experiences for our students. The Emerge Initiative was developed to help faculty design and utilize High Impact Practices (HIPs). By using a combination of techniques that have been shown to deepen student learning and engagement, these HIPs raise levels of performance, retention and success for all students. The Emerge Initiative is giving our faculty new and effective tools to instill the knowledge and skills that are essential for success in the 21st century.
