Free Webinar: National Assessment of Service and Community Engagement (NASCE)

nasce_webinarPlease join us on Tuesday, July 22nd at 2pm EST for a free webinar to learn more about the National Assessment of Service and Community Engagement (NASCE).  As part of an ongoing partnership with AASCU’s American Democracy Project and NASPA’s Lead Initiative, the NASCE assessment is being offered to member institutions at a 50% discount for the 2014-2015 academic year.

The NASCE is a web-based survey administered by the Siena College Research Institute that measures an institution’s overall levels of community engagement by evaluating the rate, frequency, and depth of student community service across 9 areas of human need, and assessing student motivations for, obstacles to, and perceptions of service. To date, the instrument has been completed by more than 30,000 college students from over 60 institutions.

For this webinar, join Dr. Don Levy, Director of the Siena College Research Institute and co-creator of the NASCE as he describes the methodology of the instrument, the survey administration process, and the utility of the data for institutional strategic planning related to community engagement.

When:  Tuesday, July 22, 2014 at 2 PM Eastern
Please RSVP to adp@aascu.org with your intent to participate in this free webinar. You’ll be provided with login details upon confirming your participation!

CIRCLE’s National Study of Learning, Voting and Engagement webinar today!

Friday, March 21, at 2 p.m. EST.

CIRCLE (the Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning & Engagement) recently received a grant to study college student voting rates.  260 universities and colleges have already signed up including 43 American Democracy Project member institutions.

The National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement (NSLVE) presents an unprecedented opportunity for your campus to learn in aggregate numbers:

  • How many of your students are eligible to register to vote
  • How many registered and/or voted, and where (locally or elsewhere)
  •  The way your students voted (regular or absentee ballot)

By participating in this study, your campus will also help build a national database for future research. CIRCLE will be working with de-identified student lists, so your students’ privacy rights are fully protected. This is not a survey!

If you are interested, you can also correlate voting with specific demographic information such as age, gender, race/ethnicity, field of study, and class level. CIRCLE has also been able to provide peer comparisons by Carnegie classification.

To join the study, you must sign up by April 10th 2014.

NSLVE is offering ADP campuses the chance to learn more about what you can do with this data and share what information you would like to know in the future. Take advantage of this opportunity and join this conversation by attending a free webinar TODAY, Friday, March 21 at 2 p.m. Eastern.

To join the webinar:

For additional specifics, go to the NSLVE page and/or contact Nancy Thomas, NSLVE director, for more information.
