DePaul University launched an institution wide COIL initiative in 2013. In Fall 2015 a single assessment instrument for students participating in COIL courses was developed and deployed each term. The instrument is aimed at assessing the impact of the intercultural aspects of the COIL experience on students’ attitudes and behaviors (it does not address content-focused learning outcomes). The instrument has been distributed to 673 students from 34 courses through 7 terms. Responses from 297 students (44% response rate) have been collected and results of the assessment will be presented. As each COIL course is unique in the structure, intensity, and modality of intercultural interaction, the success of COIL courses varies from course to course, faculty to faculty. This variability is clearly reflected in the results; nonetheless, a few general trends emerge from the results and the presentation will highlight them.
