St. George Action Plan - A Senior Learning Community Civic Engagement Endeavor

  • Mary L. Lo Re Wagner College
Keywords: Higher Education, Learning Community, Civic Engagement


Civic engagement projects not only benefit the community partners but also enhance student learning. This was evidenced through ( 1) the St. George Action Plan Assessment Questionnaire, by which specific skills were identified and quantified; (2) faculty evaluations, by which students' formal grading learning perceptions were measured; ( 3) students' reflective, unsolicited written comments, and ( 4) the Staten Island Community Questionnaire measuring interest in Wagner College students working in their community. Under all four methods, this project was a success.
