SP2.9: Fleishman Center
This proposal would develop the infrastructure necessary to provide all undergraduate students with at least one “high-impact learning experience,” defined to include a research project, internship, service-learning project or study-abroad opportunity and to monitor/assess/maintain the quality of the experiences as the scale of the effort increases. There are separately funded sub-components of the project under each of the EVP / Provost and the VP for Student Affairs. The project is functioning as an umbrella that loosely ties together separate on-going, expanded and new initiatives in several offices. Project coordination occurs via meetings between senior leadership in the offices of the Provost and Division of Student Affairs.
Goals advanced under this project are:
- Build a dynamic and transformative learning community
Indicators of success for this goal are:
- Increase students who have participated in at least one high impact learning experience
- We have set as a target that every undergraduate student will have at least one (1) HILE.
Milestones completed since last progress report:
- Defined HILE to include internships, undergraduate, research experience, credit-bearing service learning experience, study abroad and Capstone projects
- Gathered existing data on participation and identified strategies to capture and report participation in the activities in which we are interested
- Continued growth in internship opportunities offered through Fleishman Center
- Continued enhancement of undergraduate research opportunities through Office of Undergraduate Research
- Expansion of Engaged Faculty Fellows Program at Center for Civic Engagement through hiring a Faculty Engagement Associate (promotes development of courses with service learning designation)
