The Reinvention Center UVP network is a national network of Vice Presidents for Undergraduate Education and other senior officials who have campus- or college-wide responsibility for undergraduate education. The network serves as a resource and a forum at which individuals with similar responsibilities can share experiences and information, discuss common problems, plan multi-campus projects, and speak in a collective voice. While there are national groups that address the common interests of provosts, deans of graduate schools, admission directors, and other administrators at research universities, there is no parallel group for senior administrators of undergraduate education.
Every few months the Reinvention Center spotlights a topic of significance to research university faculty and administrators.
