Student Learning Outcomes

By spending time in the Volunteer Center, we hope you are able to see some of these outcomes in your own life. Please share with us how you have seen these outcomes through your volunteer experiences.


  1. Articulate and recognize issues of equity.
  2. Engage in meaningful and repetitive action in local communities.
  3. Understand the value and diversity of communities and cultures as a priority in decisions and actions.
  4. Explore and connect to God's call for justice in the world.

Accomplishing these Outcomes

The Volunteer Center uses different ways to assess these outcomes.  Examples including the following:

  • Pre- and post-program assessments of student knowledge (e.g., regarding awareness of equity issues) are used to investigate student learning in numerous Volunteer Center programs (e.g., Step Forward Day, Project Serv).
  • Written reflections (which are scored by rubrics) and art projects are collected after PVC programs such as the Urban Reality Tour.
  • Social media reflections through Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
