Office of High-Impact Practices


The Office of High Impact Practices coordinates the Make an Impact @ SFA! project. Make an Impact! provides resources to selected faculty as they implement "high-impact" practices in their courses. These high-impact practices are designed to increase student learning, success, and retention; HIP facilitates this process by focusing on three high-impact platforms: Collaborative Learning, Mentored Undergraduate Scholarship, and Field-Based Learning.
