Recognition as a measure of impact
Stephanie Moran, Director of the Community Partnership Center, Anderson University
Do you ever find yourself wondering if the work you do on your campus has impact? Do you ever contemplate if the time and energy you put toward the effort of service and civic engagement has meaning and makes a difference? Do you try to measure how service engagement affects your campus as well as the individual student, staff, or faculty member? What about the measurable effects on the community partner?
Are you already tracking faculty and student engagement in service and service learning programs?
- Do you know many students participated in a service learning course on your campus last year?
- Do you know how many faculty members on your campus teach service learning courses each year?
- Do you know how many cumulative hours of service your campus completed last year through campus based community outreach programs?
