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.
