The FACET Leadership Institute (LI) kicks off a 12-18 month theme-based project on each campus. Liaisons and the VCAA (VPUE at IU Bloomington) from each campus pull together a team of four to six full-time faculty members with at least half being FACET members. These teams can be and usually are from a variety of disciplines.
In consultation with the VCAA, teams identify and implement a project to enhance the university learning environment along a theme specified by the Leadership Institute Planning Committee. The 2014 institute theme, Student Learning and Graduation Success, follows the 2012 institute which was dedicated to high impact practices in the undergraduate curriculum.
