NASCE Background The POP Score Why NASCE? 

The National Assessment of Service and Community Engagement (NASCE) is a web-based survey 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 across 9 areas of human need. The NASCE offers schools the opportunity to explore and understand the community service engaged in by their students as well as the institutional structures that support, facilitate, or impede the enhancement of student community engagement across campus. To date, the assessment has been administered at more than 50 institutions of higher education, generating a data set of 27,000 undergraduate students and counting!

Please explore our website to see if NASCE would be a good fit for your institution.  For additional questions, or to set up a time to discuss the specifics of the survey, please contact Pete Cichetti at or 518-782-6997.
