Evaluating Community-Engaged Programs
Assessing how participation in programs offered through the Office of Engagement Initiatives impact student learning, development and well-being
While stewarding Engaged Cornell across the university, the Office of Engagement Initiatives offers workshops, grants, a certificate and other programs that broaden students’ community-engagement skills, knowledge and experience. This grant project evaluates if and how these programs affect student learning, development and well-being. The team is using data from Cornell’s Office of Institutional Research and Planning — including student senior surveys, new student surveys and Cornell’s PULSE survey — to determine if participation in community-engaged programs influences student learning outcomes and grade point averages and if effects vary among different student groups.
