Measuring Up: Simplifying Systematic Assessment for Carnegie and Beyond

Posted by Pennsylvania Campus Compact on September 18, 2017

Please consider registering for the following unique workshop: Measuring Up: Simplifying Systematic Assessment for Carnegie and Beyond

The Campus Compacts of Pennsylvania and New York are collaborating to offer their member institutions an exclusive opportunity to learn about Systematic Assessment and how to weave it throughout your community engagement programs. Even if you will not be applying for Carnegie Community Engagement Classification, these workshops will offer new and enlightened ways of thinking about assessment in the programs that you run every day. Heather Mack, an expert in assessment and the Carnegie Community Classification application process, will lead each of these workshops.
