Measure 1

2019 Status
Archived
This assessment is no longer being utilized by Alternative Breaks, per a decision made by AB student executive board.

2017 Status
Not Yet Achieved
Several Alternative Breaks executive board members completed a pre (in Jan 2018) and post (in April 2018) leadership statement, reflecting on their understanding and practice of leadership. The AAC&U VALUE Rubric for Leadership will be used to assess student leadership growth. Because of the small sample size, we will not be scoring these assessments - but will begin next year (2018-19) with the requirement that all AB executive board members complete pre and post statements, which will be reviewed and assessed for growth.
