BT2P - Bringing Theory to Practice

Bringing Theory to Practice is a national initiative, launched in 2003, to advance the core purposes of college: holistic learning, preparation for meaningful work and democratic citizenship, contribution to community wellbeing, and the flourishing of the whole person. Offering all students such transformative education, we believe, requires transformative change in higher education.
