Personalized education is defined as enhanced learning through tailored engagement in educational activities that reflect each student's unique identities, experiences, interests, abilities, and aspirations.

Developing more student-centered approaches to education is critical to enhancing Pitt’s competitiveness in recruiting and supporting a diverse population of talented students. In addition to projects initiated in the Office of the Provost and in the schools, the program aims to encourage Pitt faculty, staff and students to participate in many aspects of this initiative.
