6. How do we assess global engagement at UD?
In 2013, a new instrument was developed to better measure students’ acquisition of key intercultural competencies as participants in UD travel study programs. The Global Engagement Measurement Scale (GEMS) was designed as a pre- and post-program instrument to gauge students’ progress in several areas: cultural engagement, enthnorelativism, tolerance for ambiguity, knowledge of host site, diversity acceptance, and resilience.
