It's everyone's job to recruit and retain students but how do we do that?  What strategies can instructors use to to make sure their students feel welcome safe and have a feeling of belonging?  This sharing community will be a safe space where instructors will assess and respond to students' feelings of belonging, identity safety, institutional growth mindsets, self-efficacy, social belongingness, social connectedness, as well as trust and fairness.  Instructors will use resources from the Project for Education Research That Scales (PERTS) and the Student Experience Project as they survey their students, review student feedback, learn about relevant practices for improvement, and track improvement through repeated cycles.  Participants are able to explore and share experiences a safe space that allows for robust discussions related to how students experience courses. 

This sharing community will be led by Sylvia Tiala - Director of the Nakatani Teaching and Learning Center.


Requirement:  A willingness to use PERT's Co-Pilot Ascend/Student Experience Project's surveys and resources.


Meeting times and delivery format will be determined by participants after registration ends at 5 PM on Wednesday, September 15th.
