Program for Engagement, Support & Retention
Social distancing does not have to equate to being anti-social.
Nor does a lack of in-person connection have to equate to no connection at all.
You can bring people together — even when they are far away from one another.
At this point, students have transitioned to remote and hybrid learning, or managing life on campus with limited social outlets. How do you facilitate the same transition for student programming to foster a strong sense of community and engagement with students even though they aren’t physically on campus or only allowed to congregate in small, socially-distanced groups?
Student Activities Offices, which rely on direct contact and engagement, have felt somewhat paralyzed by the pandemic and perhaps even constrained by the use of Zoom. And every office on campus is feeling the pressure to engage and retain students, without causing an outbreak.
Our seasoned expert presenter offers crucial, actionable takeaways that will help you develop new and creative ways to engage with students "virtually," from reduced density activities to organization fairs and everything in between.
You’ll walk away with the tools you need to bring students the support they need, even if it’s remotely, through unique, creative opportunities for virtual engagement.
We offer crucial, actionable takeaways that will help you:
- Discuss ways to create virtual spaces and activities that are appealing and meaningful to students — be able to utilize student fees to provide them a robust, albeit different, college experience.
- Discover new mediums for delivering content — utilize creative outlets beyond Zoom.
- Develop programs that are interesting to students — offer opportunities for connection that pique students’ interest, help with their personal and para-professional development, and help to maintain their affinity for your school.
- Discover new ways to encourage participation with real ideas being utilized at institutions across the U.S. — you don’t have to reinvent the wheel!
- Identify key resources needed for successful virtual engagement events — utilize your human and fiscal resources wisely and purposefully so you can make limited staff and funding stretch further.
- Give your staff members a sense of purpose and passion — remind them why they are doing the work they do and why their role is so important, even during these unprecedented, challenging times.
