Student Engagement - Faculty Resources



Welcome to the engagement activities resource webpage for faculty

We encourage all faculty to embed co-curricular engagement activities in their courses. Engagement promotes a sense of community, experiential learning, and meaningful conversations that shape the whole college student. Research shows that "students who are actively involved in activities outside the classroom tend to do better academically then their uninvolved peers." (Kuh, 2001)

Staff and resources are available to assist faculty in brainstorming ideas or implementing an activity in a course. For best results, we suggest planning ahead and including the activity as part of the course syllabus. Activities that are done early in the semester are more successful in retaining students as they support relationship building between students and faculty from the start.

2013-2014 Engagement Application: Request funding and/or assistance to embed a co-curricular engagement activity in your course.  Deadline to apply for Spring 2014 funds is April 22, 2014.
