On February 26, 2016 the first Assessment Leaders Jamboree and Reunion celebrated the participants of the Assessment Leadership Institute (ALI) and their assessment achievements. The theme of the event, Carry the Assessment Torch Forward, encouraged ALI members to think about what it means to be an assessment leader beyond their programs. That is, how can we — as assessment leaders — help carry the torch forward and begin to position ourselves, our programs, and our colleagues within an institutionalized culture of assessment?

Nine ALI cohort members attended along with special guests Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs, Reed Dasenbrock, and Associate Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs, Deborah Halbert. Following a welcome and lunch session with networking opportunities, the ALI leaders were led through a fun Jamboree Jeopardy game. Then leaders engaged in an “Imagine Wild Success” activity. To conclude the event, all attending leaders were presented with a certificate of recognition for their commitment to carrying the assessment torch forward.
