Networked Improvement Community

The Pitt Advising and Student Success Networked Improvement Community comprises 10 teams of volunteers working to strengthen advising practices within and across undergraduate units at the University. With our Partners for Networked Improvement, a team of applied researchers based at Pitt's Learning Research and Development Center, the Office of the Provost offers continued support with guided activities meant to identify a shared problem of practice and work towards change cycles to address individual solutions.
