Did what you find meet your standards? I was pleasantly surprised to find cohesive messaging throughout each department’s designated physical space. This branding went beyond my expectations.
What advisement goals will you set for your department? I would recommend mandatory meetings with my students to establish a new trend of systematizing advisement in the department. Also, I want to encourage the use more visual messaging in the physical space.
One thing I will improve about my department’s advisement plan is…Make announcements in class; post messaging on my desk or office door about availability; perhaps assign students to specific faculty.
What story is told through your collective photos? The photos suggest an ethos that touches all engagement with students. These messages reach out to students. Their needs are a priority; their success is a collective goal.
What are we saying to students about persistence and retention? Students projects are showcased in the department space; documentation is centralized and accessible; those who persist are celebrated at an awards ceremony.
