Outstanding IN LSAMP Faculty Mentor of the Year Award

Faculty mentors play a significant role in the IN LSAMP program where it is our mission to double the number of historically underrepresented populations receiving bachelor degrees in STEM disciplines. IN LSAMP faculty mentors dedicate time and space in their labs to help summer, and on occasion academic year, research scholars develop their repertoire to conduct an original research project. With this award we would like to highlight some of the great work that our mentors have provided to our students and program mission.

Assessment Institute in Indianapolis

The Assessment Institute in Indianapolis is the nation's oldest and largest event focused exclusively on outcomes assessment in higher education. We anticipate that some 1000 educators from virtually every state and several other countries will take part in the 2018 Institute.

The Assessment Institute in Indianapolis is designed to provide opportunities for (1) individuals and campus teams new to outcomes assessment to acquire fundamental knowledge about the field, (2) individuals who have worked as leaders in outcomes assessment to share and extend their knowledge and skills, and (3) those interested in outcomes assessment at any level to establish networks that serve as sources of support and expertise beyond the dates of the Institute.
