Civic Engagement Survey Open Through Friday

 Civic Engagement Survey Open Through Friday

02/20/2014 

SUNY Cortland campus community members are encouraged to make a strong final push in completing an important survey that measures the civic engagement of the College’s undergraduate students.

The web-based National Assessment of Service and Community Engagement (NASCE) will be available for SUNY Cortland undergraduates to complete through Friday, Feb. 21. Just for taking the survey, students are eligible to win an Auxiliary Services Corporation (ASC) gift card worth at least $25.

Led by Siena College’s Research Institute, the survey measures an institution’s overall community impact and evaluates the rate, frequency and depth of civic-minded student activities.

Take the survey.

Twenty ASC gift cards worth $25 will be awarded randomly to students who complete the survey in addition to one grand prize gift card worth $500. All faculty and staff members, regardless of academic department or office, are asked to encourage students to complete the survey.

SUNY Cortland has been named to the U.S. President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for seven consecutive years, receiving the list’s “with distinction” designation each of the past three years.

The College’s 2013 honor roll application reported nearly 3,000 students offered 185,772 community service hours during the 2011-12 academic year. The latest NASCE data will strengthen future applications and identify potential areas for improvement.

Contact Richard Kendrick, the director of the College’s Institute for Civic Engagement and a professor of sociology/anthropology, at 607-753-2481 with questions about the survey.
