Grant Summary

$200,000 over 25 months to enhance student learning by making assessment evidence more transparent, accessible, and actionable at the level of academic and co-curricular departments. Two major efforts compose the core of this project: 1) Working with academic departments to use existing evidence to improve any aspect of their programming. Departments will develop action plans based on analyses of relevant data, and will implement them with the support of mini-grants; 2) Using existing, as well as new, evidence to understand the ethos surrounding issues of pluralism (ethnic, spiritual, and other) and to further nurture students' cultural competence. The two aspects of the project will be integrated through a diversity of forums, including faculty / staff / student workshops and inter-institutional sharing conferences.
