9:00-9:45a | Meeting Students Where They Are| Kaitlyn Root, Ph.D. (Criminal Justice and Sociology)

How do we have great interactions with students? We can start by both asking questions and listening actively! In this presentation, we will use firsthand experiences with asking questions and listening to students to start a dialogue about how we can meet students where they are at. Our students have a wide range of backgrounds, experiences and goals, and we will discuss ways we have in the past and can in the future support our diverse student body.


10:00-10:45a | The Graduate Assistant and Advisor Relationship | Peter Felten (Co-Author of Relationship-Rich Education)

Graduate Assistants (GAs) and their advisors spend a lot of time learning and working together. The quality of this relationship is key to the success – and the well-being – of both parties. Join Peter Felten, co-author of Relationship-Rich Education, for a discussion about how both GAsand advisors can strengthen this crucial relationship.


11:00-11:45a | Fostering Student Relationships Through Team-Based Learning | Lori Howe, M.F.A., Ph.D. (Honors College)

In the Honors First Year Seminar, A Walk Across the World, relationships are a key component. Students work closely with classmates from other fields, practicing team-based, interdisciplinary inquiry. By bringing the knowledge and research of disparate disciplines together, students think critically and creatively to co-design shovel-ready proposals with direct application to serious problems that our world faces today. These projects culminate in whole-team multimodal presentations/ proposals, along with a research document. In this presentation, I will talk through the stages of the assignment and show segments of previous teams' projects.
