Rationale for the Plan

The rationale for assessing volunteer attendance is that it informs us of the number of students who are currently involved in our civic engagement program, leading to decisions regarding whether or not changes are needed to improve our volunteer program.

Data Collection and Evaluation

The data collection will take place in May 2020. The Director of the Office of Student Activities, Jean Phelps, will evaluate, analyze, and interpret the data.
