Ambassador Program

The Ambassador Program’s goal is to facilitate discussions in biology and life science departments that will aid them in implementing the recommendations of Vision and

Change.  We hope to help the department move along the path to creating a transformed life science education program that uses inclusive, student-centered, evidence-based teaching and learning to create an educated citizenry who routinely applscientific knowledge, reasoning, and creative insight to address real-world challenges. 


This goal is achieved by facilitating the department
’s discussion of its desired future state and the path by which the department can achieve that state. We approach this goal with organizational change and systems thinking in mind – that the whole department will be involved, in the context of its own institutional environment. The following topics are elements of this facilitation.   

  • Experiencing the Change Process 

  • Empowering Teams to Work Together

  • Identifying the Department’s Vision 

  • Understanding and Using Facilitative Leadership and Communication

  • Identifying the Barriers to the Department’s Vision  

  • Removing the Barriers to the Department’s Vision 

  • Creating an Action Plan to Implement the Department’s Vision
