Institutions of higher education often state their commitment to service and community engagement in their mission statements, but lack the necessary data to demonstrate adequate fulfillment of that commitment.
NASCE, developed by Siena’s Dr. Don Levy and Dr. Mathew Johnson — comprehensively measures the rate, frequency, and depth of student community service across multiple areas of human need.


Students and their activities contribute to the community engagement of an institution as a whole. NASCE assesses attitudes towards service, motivations & obstacles to serving, and how students hear about service opportunities. Your feedback is crucial to learning more about your school.

Sevice & Community Engagement

Community engagement varies, and each school needs a method in which to measure this. From service trips outside of the country, to service days in the local community, and so much more, students are participating all across the nation to give back to communities across the globe.
