Beyond the Gates: Creating a Campus-Wide Program for Cross-Cultural Learning and Assessing Mission Integration
Mercyhurst University's “Beyond the Gates” program is an experiential learning opportunity for all students, centered on the idea that learning through real-world, personal engagement enables students to apply academic knowledge and skills in developing critical insight about themselves and others, our mission, and civic responsibility. Now in the third year, we are measuring the growth of students in these dimensions. In this presentation, we share information about this program structure, intent, and execution. We also specifically focus on assessing students longitudinally across the entire set of outreach experiences to determine whether the program outcomes are being met.
This presentation will demonstrate the kind of topics and best practices that should be showcased through the Community Engagement track at the Assessment Institute. The Assessment Institute is the nation's oldest and largest event of this type and it is the only conference in the nation with a specific track focused on demonstrating the work of tracking, monitoring, assessing and evaluating campus-community engagement.
