Use Assessment to Measure Progress Toward Pluralism 

As campuses increasingly prioritize interfaith cooperation in and out of the classroom, educators and other leaders are asking important questions about students’ progress toward those ends. Are students learning the knowledge and skills they need to understand and interact across religious diversity? To what degree are campus interfaith programs effective? Do students of diverse worldviews feel welcome, included, and supported on campus? 

IFYC believes in the importance of asking and answering these questions.  Our assessment resources help collegiate educators understand how to collect information to measure student learning, better understand success, and pinpoint opportunities to improve students’ experiences with religious diversity on campus.  Our resources also help you translate assessment findings into action on campus.
