Program Steps

Eleven steps to a great faculty/student program

  1. Think of a great idea that brings together students and faculty members outside of the classroom that will increase students' comfort level in accessing faculty.
  2. Plan what you will need for the program (food, space, supplies, participants). If you are a student asking one or more faculty members to attend, check with the professors to make sure that they are available to attend the program and are willing to participate.
  3. If you need it, ask for help in planning a program, inviting faculty or students to attend, or thinking of an idea. Contact Residential Education for assistance.
  4. If you are a student, apply for Faculty Engagement Programming by filling out a Program Proposal. If you are a member of the faculty or an administrator, please contact Residential Education to propose program funding.
  5. Once you receive approval for your faculty engagement program, advertise your program to your audience and your residential community. Do this only after you receive programming funding approval!
  6. Implement your faculty engagement program!
  7. HAVE FUN! Interact with faculty and students who are attending your program.
  8. You may be asked to have the program participants fill out a participant evaluation form. You will be asked to do this when your program is approved. If you are asked to do this, please ask for copies from your CD, hand the evaluations out at the end of the program, and turn them back into your CD along with the procard. Evaluations are a critical part of the process, so thank you in advance for all your help.
  9. Once it is all over, thank all of your participants for attending your program.
  10. Please fill out the organizer program evaluation and ask your faculty member(s) to fill out a faculty program evaluation.
  11. Think of another great idea!
