2021-2022 IEC.jpg

The role of the IEC (updated September 2021 by the Board of Directors) is to meet the inclusion and engagement needs of NACADA’s diverse membership by:

  • Developing and implementing an assessment process/cycle
  • Analyzing and reviewing trends in the assessment data
  • Researching and recommending effective methods and practices throughout the association.
  • Create an ongoing, three-year assessment cycle, while recognizing there may be one-time, specific assessments that complement this cycle.
  • Develop a standardized assessment instrument/tool that can be used for NACADA events and programs at every level (i.e., state, regional, global) with flexibility for “add-ons” when specific needs arise.
  • Provide recommendations for training to the Inclusion & Engagement Training Advisory Board
  • Ensure committee includes members with an assessment background

Membership: IEC members serve a two-year term and meet yearly on-site at the NACADA annual conference. Online meetings via the Zoom platform take place as needed throughout the year. Hear from three committee members HERE.  

How to Get Involved

Those interested in learning more about the IEC's work and/or in becoming a member may wish to attend the committee's yearly on-site meeting at Annual Conference or request information on attending a virtual meeting. The Committee Chair is also always willing to discuss the group's work with interested NACADA members. The expertise/skills needed by committee members will be determined by the group's current projects, but as can be seen in the committee's charge, knowledge of assessment is beneficial. Prospective members may be offered an opportunity to assist with the work of one of the current subcommittees to have a chance to experience the type of contribution and commitment that would be expected from them as a member. Those interested in assisting with the IEC's work and/or in becoming a member should review the "IEC Member Roles & Responsibilities" document in the  Member Responsibilities module in the right-hand column of this page, and then contact the committee's Executive Office Liaison, Wendy Troxel.
