By Amy Clark, Administrative Assistant, DUE

DUE’s six strategic themes, which focus on global education, diversity, innovative teaching and learning, holistic experiences in education, information technology and catalyzing the Undergraduate Educational Commons, provide a framework for the work we all do. As important as this process of setting goals and themes is to the DUE, it is also important to help students translate them into meaningful experiences. In an effort to make this happen, DUE has allocated a small discretionary fund which is overseen by Sr. Associate Dean Elizabeth Reed.
