Partnership for Undergraduate Life Sciences Education (PULSE)

PULSE supports ASPB initiatives for undergraduate education that stem from 2007 and continue today.


This week's PULSE Point:


YOU are invited to catalyze life science departmental transformation by using the:

PULSE Vision & Change Rubric

Data Collection Portal

The rubrics offer structure for departmental reflection and discussion regarding topics relevant to program transformation.

Eight institutions are piloting the rubrics and PULSE certification program in Spring 2014.

PULSE also needs input from more institutions of all types to obtain a national snapshot of the positioning of undergraduate life sciences departments implementing V&C ideals.

Your or Your Institution can:

-        Review the rubrics, instruction manual, and BioCore guide.

-        Engage in a self-reflective process.

-        Act as Self-Study Pilot Members.
