Longitudinal Narrative of Student Involvement

Stamp staff are currently conducting a qualitative research study seeking to understand the influence of co-curricular involvement on students' growth and development.  Participants will be interviewed once per semester over the course of their undergraduate career at the university, providing a unique opportunity to understand students' involvement choices, influences, and outcomes over time.  Data collection started in Fall 2017.

Multi-Institutional Study of Leadership (MSL)

The MSL is a national survey exploring students' socially responsible leadership skills and attitudes administered every three years.  Data from this study are used to improve leadership and service programming as well as enrich the campus conversation on best practices for producing socially responsible citizens.  The most recent administration of the MSL is was Spring 2018.  Reports should be available in Fall 2018.
