With young people today being more likely to identify as LGBTQ+ than older generations, we need to be prepared to support our students throughout their journey with us with any identities they bring. In this presentation, we will re-introduce attendees to our Safe Zone Program at Mason and compare our program and its measures with others at the national level to examine how it has developed over time. With an assessment lens, we will share how we moved Safe Zone from simple program outcomes to more meaningful learning outcomes with new measures. After an overview of this process and a deeper dive into our data tool, we will then engage the audience in activities around planning for data analysis as well as drawing conclusions from the data. We will discuss our current state of things in terms of examining the data and plans for next steps. Finally, we will share lessons we have learned through this process and the implications for the future of Mason’s Safe Zone Program and an integrated assessment approach to student learning initiatives.
