Invitation to a talk by AAU's Emily Miller

December 15, 2017

Dear Colleagues,

I am excited to share that Emily Miller, associate vice president for policy at the Association of American Universities (AAU), will be at the university January 10-11 to discuss the AAU’s commitment to teaching excellence.

Dr. Miller will hold a public presentation on January 10 from 8:30 – 9:50 a.m. in the EMU’s Redwood Auditorium, titled Aligning Practice to Policy: Teaching Excellence at AAU Institutions. The talk is open to the public and pre-registration is not required.

Discussion topics will include the AAU’s findings about key institutional elements that support teaching excellence, the responsibility of AAU universities to use evidence-based teaching methods to promote student success, and how misalignment of practice and policy can get in the way of that success.

As leaders on campus, I encourage you to join this discussion with Dr. Miller. Together we can ensure best practices are implemented to support student success.

I hope you can join us.

Assistant Vice Provost for Academic Affairs
