Student engagement is the result of the time and effort students devote to activities empirically linked to the intended outcomes of college and what institutions do to both provide these activities and induce students to participate in them. Student engagement is characterized by critical examination, analysis, reflection, and problem solving.
( Adapted from Kuh, 2009).

In order to more fully engage students in their undergraduate college experience and to increase student success, Ramapo College of New Jersey proposed a four-year developmental model of student engagement which includes student learning goals and outcomes for academic, social, personal, and campus/civic engagement. Key Points of Engagement (KPEs) are designed to addresses one or more of the desired outcomes and KPEs are assessed to determine their effectiveness. Social media and other technology have been used to market the initiative and communicate with students about KPEs. A co-curricular transcript that records a student’s progress across the four years has been developed. Long term assessment of the model will use results from the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), retention data, and student satisfaction surveys to determine the validity and effectiveness of the overall modal.

The presenters will review literature related to student engagement and student learning. The Four Year Developmental Student Engagement Model will be presented and the presenters will describe its development with special emphasis on the academic and student affairs collaboration. Examples of KPEs, marketing strategies, and formative assessments will be presented.
