  • The AY '15/'16 Raiders Engaged survey is now open for input! The annual assessment gathers information on any programs, projects or activities that faculty and staff conducted specifically for the benefit of individuals or organizations outside of the university. Faculty and staff are invited to report qualitative and quantitative data on any community-engaged teaching, research, or service activities conducted between 9/1/2015 and 8/31/2016, whether at the local, national, or international level . The survey will remain open for entries until December 1, 2016. Data gathered is used for performance and accountability measures for Priority 4, Further Outreach and Engagement, of the University's Strategic Plan, "Making It Possible." In addition, the Office of Planning and Assessment will upload responses from faculty directly into their Digital Measures accounts for annual reporting purposes. For that reason and to avoid any duplicate reporting, the "service/engagement" section in Digital Measures will be closed between 9/1/16 and 12/1/16. To access the survey, click here.
