This presentation will feature video-based examples of such components including programs of study delivered through academies, Universal Design for Learning–based teaching strategies, interdepartmental collaboration, external partnerships through advisory committees, participation in CTSOs, and involvement of students in entrepreneurial initiatives and interdisciplinary project opportunities.
