This interactive presentation will detail the Sam H. Jones (SHJ) Community Service Scholarship program, its assessment, and the process for documenting the Scholars’ assessed learning through the Registrar. With increasing calls for higher education to recognize student learning that occurs in numerous places and ways outside of traditional classroom settings, Indiana University-Purdue University, Indianapolis (IUPUI) was invited to participate in the AACRAO/NASPA/Lumina project to create a comprehensive student record that includes more than the “official academic record”. Known as REAL (Record of Experiential and Applied Learning), the goal of this co-curricular transcript is to document a student achievement record of assessed learning experiences that have occurred outside of the classroom. This Registrar-verified REAL record will also include a link to student self-reported co-curricular activities.
One of many ways IUPUI demonstrates its commitment to both community engagement and fostering student civic learning is through the SHJ Community Service Scholarship program, one of the nation’s largest service-based scholarship programs. Since 1994, this campus program has awarded over 2,700 scholarships, totaling over $6 million. The purpose of this program is to recognize students’ prior service contributions to the community and foster their civic learning and community involvement. Scholars work with community partners on various community activities (e.g., tutoring, urban farming, advocacy). Since the SHJ Program’s inception, the Center for Service and Learning (CSL) has annually assessed the Scholars learning (e.g., civic, cognitive). These assessments are ongoing, rigorous, and widely shared. Their inclusion in the REAL represents the further institutionalization of co-curricular service.
