The quality and value of an undergraduate education continues to receive scrutiny by various stakeholders associated with higher education. Concern about stagnant graduation rates and limited gains in essential student learning outcomes has motivated greater action to enhance undergraduate education on many college campuses. Considerable attention has been placed on increasing student engagement in effective educational practices, and in particular, increasing students' participation in high-impact practices, such as undergraduate research, service-learning and capstones, that hold promise for increasing learning gains. This plenary will provide an overview of the critical emphases in student learning and review what matters to improved undergraduate education.Â
