National Assessment of Service and Community Engagement (NASCE)
The National Assessment of Service and Community Engagement (NASCE) is an institutional assessment conducted by the Siena College Research Institute that quantitatively measures a college or university’s overall level of community engagement by evaluating the rate, frequency, and depth of student community service activities at participating campuses. The NASCE enables schools to explore and understand the community service engaged in by their students - across 9 areas of need - as well as the institutional structures that support the enhancement of community engagement across campus. To date, the assessment has been administered at more than 50 institutions of higher education, generating a dataset of 27,000 undergraduate students and counting!
The NASCE can be administered during the Fall or Spring semester of a given academic year, and participating institutions are recruited on a first come/first serve, rolling basis. Currently there are a few spots left for the upcoming Spring 2014 semester.
The instrument was developed by Dr. Don Levy, Director of the Siena College Research Institute, and Dr. Mathew Johnson, Professor of Sociology and Director of Siena's Office of Academic Community Engagement.
