Service Learning Mastermind Marathon – Assessment Week 2018

The Assessment Committee has once again partnered with Student Life for our fifth annual critical thinking race, Mastermind Marathon. Each year, during the spring semester, Assessment Week focuses on one core outcome. The purpose of the Mastermind Marathon is to promote the core outcomes in a fun way. The focus this year is Service Learning.
