February Champions' meeting Canceled.The cancellation is due to many champions attending the National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI) training. As you are aware, the University of Tennessee is beginning the process to become a Campus Affiliate for the National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI). NCBI is an international leadership organization that provides training in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in community organizations, K-12 schools, college and university campuses, corporations, and law enforcement. Many champions, including Dr. Melissa Brown, will attend a three-day training that helps our University become a Campus Affiliate of NCBI.
Assessment Plans Please make sure that you are completing your assessment plans after you get your data so that you can adequately document and plan, while everything is fresh, do not save it until June! Assessment should be HOW you approach your daily tasks, not become an ADDITION to it.
Have you encountered difficulties in asking about gender expression and/or gender identity in surveys, interviews, or focus groups? Join Chase Catelano, Jeananne Knies, and Chelsea Lyles for a conversation about challenges and considerations for designing gender demographic questions for assessment and research projects. Please keep in mind that the Division of Student Life has specific approved gender questions that can be used for surveys. However, this webinar can be useful to you if you plan to conduct other assessments such as focus groups or interviews. Find the link to the webinar here!
This eight-week online course will introduce you to foundational assessment practices as well as data analysis techniques. It will also help you identify strategies to improve assessment efforts in your office and much more! This self-paced course begins on February 4th at 4 pm Eastern, and registration is open now.
Please consider attending one of the upcoming assessment conferences listed on the OASI website. Conferences are a great way to network, and they also provide an excellent opportunity to expand your knowledge. Look at the full list of upcoming conferences here.
