Begin with simple counts, then analyze for patterns 2.Details of who, what and when to measure Number of students who attend political engagement events Number of faculty who encourage attendance Pilot for Major events, supporting events, Fall 2009: – Freshmen Convocation – Constitution Day with Eugene Robinson – Constitutional Rights with Ryan Clark – Fannie Lou Hamer Symposium

14 Faculty Promotion Conclusions The 2 most reliable ways to insure student attendance – Require attendance at a specific event – Make attendance at a specific event one way to meet a course requirement With the exception of the Constitution Day Event, just giving extra credit was less effective Simply announcing an event, even with encouragement to attend is not sufficient
