The Academic Excellence Initiative is a collaborative project at UW–Madison. It is designed to take a systematic, Teaching-as-Research-based approach toward addressing the academic achievement gap that separates under-represented minority, 1st generation in college, and low socio-economic status undergraduate students from their peers, particularly in large courses that serve as gateways to various majors. Please contact Project Leader Don Gillian-Daniel about other opportunities to get involved.
Delta's Academic Excellence Initiative also offers workshops and occasionally hosts Delta Roundtables around diversity and achievement gap related topics. Please contact Don Gillian-Daniel about upcoming workshops, and consult the Delta Roundtables page for information on upcoming roundtables.
