Finding Common Ground - GAPSA Evaluation

  1. 1. Finding  Common  Ground  and  Increasing  U3liza3on  Through    Open,  Collabora3ve,  and  Innova3ve  Evalua3on  Methods   Alfonso  Sintjago,  Vice  President  -­‐  GAPSA   BriHany  Edwards,  President  -­‐  GAPSA  
  2. 2. Historical  Challenges   GAPSA  faced  difficul3es  over  the  years  due  to   structural  problems,  and  limited  student   involvement.  These  long  term  problems  led  to   conversa3ons  about  the  poten3al  dissolu3on  of   GAPSA  by  its  councils.  
  3. 3. Re-­‐envisioning  Government   Through   the   inclusion   of   Art   of   Hos3ng   Techniques,   Integra3ve   Leadership   Values,   a   Developmental   Evalua3on   Model,   Greater   Student   Representa3on,   Emerging  Technologies,  and  A  Commitment  to  Greater   Openness   and   Transparency,   GAPSA   Has   Addressed   Most   Of   Its   Challenges.   This   However   Remains   an   Ongoing  Process.  
  4. 4. Open  Government  As  A  PlaRorm   Open  Standards  Spark  Innova3on  And  Growth   Build  A  Simple  System  And  Let  It  Evolve   Design  For  Par3cipa3on   Learn  from  Your  “Hackers”   Data  Mining  Allows  You  To  Harness  Implicit   Par3cipa3on   •  Lower  The  Barriers  To  Experimenta3on   •  Lead  By  Example   •  •  •  •  •  Open  Government   Lathrop  &  Ruma  (2010)  
  5. 5. Developmental  Evalua3on   Evalua&on  processes  and   ac&vi&es  that  support  program,   project,  product,  personnel,  and/ or  organiza&onal  development.   The  evaluator  is  part  of  a  team   whose  members  collaborate  to   conceptualize,  design,  and  best   new  approaches  in  long-­‐term,  on-­‐ going  process  of  con&nuous   improvement,  adapta&on,  and   inten&onal  change.   (PaHon,  1994)  
  6. 6. U3liza3on-­‐Focused  Evalua3on   Council  of   Graduate   Students   Process  for  Making   Decisions  About   And  Focusing  an   Evalua&on  on   Intended  Use  By   Intended  User   (PaHon,  1994)   Nursing   College  Board   GradSEHD   School  of   Den3stry   Student   Council   Pharmacy   College  Board   GAPSA   School  of   Public  Health   Student   Senate   Medical   School   Student   Council   College  of   Veterinary   Medicine   Student   Council   Masters  in   Business   Administra3on   Associa3on   Law  Council

  8. 8. GAPSA  Evaluation   Data   Analysis   “BE  IT  RESOLVED  this  internal   evaluation  will  utilize  a  series  of   different  qualitative  methods   including  the  use  of  focus   groups,  interviews,  data   analysis,  and  surveys  to  assess   its  functioning  in  relationship  to   student  councils.”   Par3cipant   Observa3on   Focus   Groups   Evalua3on   Interviews   Surveys  
  9. 9. Tyler  Gieseke   Minnesota  Daily   December  11,  2012   GAPSA  Will  Broaden  Its  Executive  Board   A  ‘Taxation  Without  Representation’  Setup  Will  Be  Changed.     “Though   only   half   of   the  University   of   M i n n e s o t a ’s   1 0   g r a d u a t e   a n d   professional   schools   are   represented   on   its   executive   board   this   year,   GAPSA  plans  to  modify  representation   to   include   the   presidents   of   all   of   its   member   councils   next   fall.  The   group   will   also   partner   with   the   Center   for   Integrative   Leadership   to   provide   leadership  training  for  its  members.”  
  10. 10. Pressing  Student  Concerns     What  comments  do  you  have  for  the  Board  of  Regents  about  your  graduate  or  professional     experience  with  respect  to  advisers,  graduate  assistantships,  workload,  etc.?    
  11. 11. Focus  Groups   Meeting  with  Each  Council  and     Reaching  A  Saturation  Point   Example  of  Focus  Answers     AA:    To  be  honest,  in  council  updates  and  GAPSA  rep  debrief,   not  concerning.  But  we  don’t  reach  out  for  GAPSA  to  reach   out.    We  (GAPSA)  does  grants  well.    Benefits  us     EB:    can  you  make  sure  my  grant  gets  passed?    I  liked  our   council  retreat,  things  are  being  done.     M:    Not  sure  what  GAPSA  does,  we’re  fairly  isolated,  (others   concur)  We  are  here  for  several  years,  have  a  lot  to  learn   from  other  students  on  campus.  
  12. 12. Framing  a  Better  Alignment   Learning  Leadership  Skills   CIL   Center  for   Integra3ve   Leadership   GAPSA     Graduate  and   Professional   Student   Associa3on   Grad.  And  Prof.  Councils     Execu3ve  Members  of   Each  Council   Improving  The  University
