Amanda Geraci briefly described the CAS (Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education) Review process that has taken place in the Institutional Standing Committee on Student Affairs and Services. The CAS Review is a quality improvement process that will review the following six areas this academic year: Adult Learner Programs and Services, Athletics, College Honor Societies, Education Abroad Programs, Registrar Programs and Services, and Service-Learning Programs. In that context, Amanda Geraci asked for suggestions on obtaining student feedback. In 2010, the campus community participated in a SWOT analysis of Student Affairs and Services offices. That process yielded reports and changes within many service offices across campus.
Suggestions from the student leaders included:
- Online surveys
- Visits to RSO meetings
- Suggestion boxes in key areas
- Paper surveys
- Creation of an email address for feedback – should be something catchy and memorable.
Upcoming key weeks of programming were noted: Spirit Week is November 17-21. Winter Welcome Back will be January 12-16. MLK Service Projects will take place January 19-21. RSOs interested in hosting a project should contact Student Life.
University-sponsored social media includes Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. RSOs interested in promoting their organization on University-sponsored social media should send requests directly to Amanda Geraci.
