|Description||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 rubric descriptors designate different levels of adoption of Vision & Change principles from first steps to full departmental transformation. The rubrics initially can provide a structure for departmental reflection and self-assessment and discussion regarding a host of topics relevant to program transformation. The utility of the PULSE Vision & Change Rubrics is to provide a basic framework of expectations, such that evidence of adoption of Vision & Change principles can be gathered and self-assessed by departments and a roadmap for continued transformation can be plotted. 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. These rubrics are designed for flexible use by undergraduate life science departments at a broad range of institution types including two-year colleges, four-year liberal arts institutions, regional comprehensive institutions and research institutions. The core expectations articulated in the PULSE Vision & Change Rubrics can and should be translated into the language of individual departments and institutions, in order to evaluate and expedite departmental transformation in the context of each institution. An institution of any type should be able to achieve each level of certification.|
