Problem Statement

Higher education often falls short of delivering what is truly required for societal advancement. The current system primarily rewards faculty for publications, sidelining the importance of effective teaching and real-world problem-solving. This misalignment of academic incentives fails to prioritize student success and societal impact.


To establish an “Impact Track” for faculty members that align academic incentives with teaching excellence, real-world problem-solving, and student engagement.
