Dr. Barbara Holland in NC next month for
Measuring and Monitoring Civic Engagement
Register HERE for Measuring and Monitoring Civic Engagement. Registration closes May 23, 2012.
Have you ever thought "Our campus is very engaged in the community, but we aren't sure how to capture impacts and outcomes?"
Do you know more data could help, yet wonder what data is useful?
Participants will work to clarify their institutional goals and objectives for tracking engagement activity, identify target audiences and their expectations, and explore strategies and techniques for developing a sustainable data collection plan that will align with institutional needs and goals and capture the perspectives of diverse constituencies.
This event is designed for higher education civic engagement practitioners and those who can help implement civic engagement assessment strategies. Choose the location that is best for you and bring a team: civic engagement administrators, Institiutional Research, student and academic affairs, and economic development or extension folks working in the community.
Most academic institutions have worked hard to grow a strategic agenda of community engagement that involves students, faculty, staff and external partners in a variety of activities. Involve them all in creating your campus' assessement strategy!

Wednesday, June 13 (9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.) at Queens University of Charlotte
