A brief description of how the results of the assessment(s) are used in shaping policy, programs, and initiatives:

We used focus groups in 2011-12 to assess the campuses attitudes towards and beliefs about global engagement as a concept as a campus commitment. We conducted focus groups and gathered data to assess the effectiveness of the College’s Wooster In. . . Programs (courses taught on our campus with a brief off-campus component built into the course). The Ambassadors Program collects data on the perception of the quality of student Ambassadors’ presentations in College classes as well as in K-12 schools throughout Wayne County. Our Cross-cultural Connections (C3) program (a learning-living program) uses surveys to gather indirect evidence about student response to the Program’s events. These data have been used in the CDGE to improve programming.
