Update: PULSE Vision & Change Rubrics

The PULSE Vision & Change Leadership Fellows are pleased to release the PULSE Vision & Change Rubrics v1.0.

The PULSE Vision & Change Rubrics articulate fundamental criteria for evaluating the level of adoption of the principles of Vision and Change in life science departments. The rubrics can provide a structure for departmental reflection and discussion regarding topics relevant to program transformation. Ultimately, the rubrics are intended to serve as the basis for a tiered certification program for undergraduate life science departments that have adopted some or all of the principles outlined in the Vision & Change report and a blueprint for change in departments that have not yet adopted those principles.
 

Please use and share the rubrics, send us feedback for improvement, and contact us with any questions (contact information is included on the document cover page).  When the Rubric Instruction Manual and PULSE Vision & Change Certification Program are completed we will share those as well.

You may download the rubrics here: PULSE Vision & Change Rubrics v1.0.pdf

About the Image

Woodcut from Walter Ryff (d. 1548),
Spiegel und Regiment der Gesundheyt,
Frankfurt, 1555.

In this bedside scene in a traditional medical setting, the physician is in close contact with the patient, taking the pulse and in easy visual and verbal range.

The “Taking the Pulse” working group is focused on developing a recognition program for biology and life science departments that adopts the principles and recommendations of the “Vision and Change” report.   We hope this will be a dynamic, tiered recognition program that acknowledges departments that have already implemented change and inspires those that have not yet done so.
