In effort to strengthen educational outcomes in the liberal arts and sciences, Aligned Programs for the 21st Century (ALPS21) aims to identify exemplary programs in higher education—courses, programs, and co-curricular activities—that bridge different perspectives among major stakeholders on college campuses. ALPS21 is part of a larger empirical study, Liberal Arts and Sciences for the 21st Century (LAS21), which investigates how students, parents of students, faculty, administrators, trustees, young alums, and job recruiters conceive of the purposes, goals, best practices, and most challenging features of undergraduate education in the United States. ALPS21 will disseminate strategies, approaches, and examples of programs on college campuses that effectively bring constituencies into better alignment.
