Humanitarian Action Minor
JUHAN Assessment Toolkit for Universities' Humanitarian Engagements is a compilation of tools to measure student learning in the context of humanitarian coursework and co-curricular engagements. It consists of cognitive and affective learning outcomes as well as tools to measure student learning on such as defined rubric traits, a vignette, a course survey, and prompts for engaging students in reflecting on their service experiences. The toolkit also showcases syllabi from a selection of JUHAN courses which illustrates the many fields of study in which faculty can incorporate humanitarian themes into their existing courses in creative and interesting ways.
Faculty who are interested in teaching a course in the minor should reach out to either Janie Leatherman, Director firstname.lastname@example.org or Julie Mughal, Associate Director, email@example.com for more information.
