The 2016 Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement (CLDE) Meeting organized by the American Democracy Project (ADP), The Democracy Commitment (TDC), and NASPA: Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education have created a special pre-conference workshop sponsored by Educational Testing Services (ETS).
Join us on Wednesday, June 1st to engage in planning activities and hear from experts in the field as we help you in “Building Institutional Capacity for CLDE Assessment across Your Campus”.
This pre-conference institute, sponsored by ETS, is intended to help colleges and universities as they consider the constellation of civic or community engagement assessment, tracking and monitoring possibilities. Participants will be facilitated through a process that allows you to create a strategic plan to assess, track, and/or monitor civic learning and democratic engagement activities. This plan could help your institution to fulfill teaching and learning, accreditation, and/or Carnegie Classification for Community Engagement goals. We encourage teams of people from your campus who represent multiple layers of community engagement.
Organizers: Kristin Norris, Director of Assessment, Office of Community Engagement and Anne Weiss, Director of Assessment, Indiana Campus Compact, Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI); Javarro Russell, Senior Research and Assessment Advisor, Higher Education Division, ETS; and Jennifer Domagal-Goldman, ADP National Manager, AASCU
Wednesday, June 1 | 9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Campuses confront an array of challenges when it comes to telling their story of fulfilling their civic mission because they lack a systematic approach to assessing student outcomes related curricular, co-curricular, and project-based activities. We encourage participation from campus teams to spend the day engaging in conversations with experts who will work with you and your colleagues to build a shared understanding and vision for how you can gather evidence that allows for informed decision-making, improved programs, and strengthened campus-community relationships. This pre-conference institute, sponsored by ETS, is intended to help colleges and universities as they consider the constellation of civic engagement assessment possibilities and work toward more meaningful strategic planning around civic learning and democratic engagement to fulfill teaching and learning, accreditation and/or Carnegie Classification for Community Engagement goals. We encourage teams of people from your institution who represent the multiple layers and levels of community engagement, for example, a team made up of:
- Faculty teaching community-engaged learning courses
- Student affairs professionals planning one-time or ongoing community-engaged events or programs
- Administrators support these individuals to connect the work of community engagement to the mission, vision and strategic plan of your institution.
