This study examines the relationship between HWS student involvement in CCESL programs and their continued commitment, or lack thereof, to lives of civic engagement. In order to understand the relationship between current student involvement and future civic engagement, we compared the results of the Assessment of Service and Civic Engagement (ASCE), a honor’s project titled “Service Learning and Civic Engagement at Hobart and William Smith Colleges,” and a HWS alumni survey to determine if the services provided by CCESL prepare HWS students for a life of future civic engagement.
