Spending a day with colleagues from @APLU_News , @jfftweets , and @AASCU exploring #ImprovementScience and #NetworkedImprovement. Thanks to @WestEd and @TidesCommunity for your expertise, and to @gatesfoundation for hosting us.


This past Wednesday, my colleague Liz Nilsen (@STEMetc) and I helped some Virginia #econdev professionals quickly create new regional collaborations, and then move them to action toward measurable outcomes. All in four hours! This is the power of #strategicdoing.

@ColoradoStateU With 3 days until this year's @APLU_News Annual Meeting, the theme for which is "In Service," we're celebrating all the ways our APLU-member partner universities give back to their communities, both local and global. #APLU2019 #ProudtoPartner
