Assessing Our Work

We're committed to continuously improving the experience of our students by routinely gathering information about our students’ perceptions, experiences, learning, and development. Student feedback helps us improve the quality of our programs for future students.

What we're doing based on your feedback

We want to make sure students know about these opportunities in our residence halls!

Students shared that additional access and use of community lounges would help them to successfully complete their academic work. So, we're expanding our lounge usage!

To assist in keeping the community healthy, we're:
 

  1. Ensuring Max Capacity signage is on all lounges, so student can accomodate physical distancing.

  2. Posting all health and safety requirements.

  3. Implementing a reservation system for large community lounges for student events and floor meetings. We're also posting a link to reservation calendars, so students will know when a lounge is available for personal use.

  4. Providing supplies in lounges for students to disinfect table space and other high-touch areas before/after use.
