Join us for a free webinar about Institutional Impact Reports on
Wednesday, March 11 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern.
As a non-profit college or university, telling the story of your institution’s community involvement is crucial. Are you currently collecting the information you need to create your institutional impact report?
Institutional impact reports are a way for colleges and universities to share all of the steps they are taking to improve their local communities. Impact reports allow colleges and universities to show the bigger picture of what their institution is doing to serve their community, how their activities align with their mission, and validate their not-for-profit status. As stewards of place or anchor institutions, colleges and universities have the responsibility of being good stewards of their resources. Impact reports provide a way of demonstrating to students, staff members, and the community, that you are using your resources wisely. Show your community how you are making an impact!
If you are interested in learning more about the value of institutional impact reports and how your school may benefit from tracking your service-learning and community engagement information join our webinar! On March 11th at 2 p.m. Eastern we will be hosting an informational webinar on institutional impact reports and an opportunity to partner with Lyon Software. The webinar will walk viewers through some of the basic benefits and advantages of impact reporting. Join us to learn how institutional impact reports can help you see how your current service-learning and community engagement activities align with the culture and values of your institution. See how other anchor institutions are providing community members with the bigger picture of how they are serving the community and showing how they are living out their mission.
Unsure of what to include on your institutional impact report or where to start? We will also be highlighting some of the key components needed to create an institutional impact report. Lyon Software will provide webinar viewers with a summary of the details often included in an institutional impact report as well as some sample reports. Find out how to help your community see the big picture and show them what you are doing to make your area a smarter, safer and better place to live, learn and work.
Webinar viewers will also be among the first to hear about Lyon Software’s AASCU User Group Opportunity. During this year’s Civic Learning & Democratic Engagement Meeting Lyon Software will be extending an offer to AASCU member institutions (including ADP and TDC campuses) allowing them to join a user group for their software CBISA Plus. CBISA Plus is a planning, managing, and tracking tool higher education institutions can utilize in creating their institutional impact reports. AASCU CBISA User Group members will receive their CBISA Software subscriptions at a discounted price and have the opportunity to work closely with Lyon Software. User group members will have full access to all of the newest benefits and features of the premiere package, CBISA Plus. AASCU members wishing to join the CBISA user group will be among the first to provide feedback on the new Community Needs and Goals modules. Lyon Software is very excited to team up with AASCU and hear the insight user group members will be able to provide!
