Workshop: Cultivating Campus Cultures that Value Student Success

Course ID - CTD0795-4    

Short Title: Student Success     

Audience:       Faculty, Staff, Administrators
Length of Workshop:        2.5 hours 
Prerequisite     none

The culture of any organization has an enormous influence on what happens to members of that group.  For any of us who seriously contemplate making our campuses more effective in promoting learning and success in our first-year students, we must consider the powerful role played by campus culture.  Before initiating change, we need to understand what works and what doesn't on our campuses.  What does your institution value? What people and activities are celebrated? Do your standard operating procedures reflect what your mission says is desirable? Do you feel change is necessary to achieve campus goals, but feel powerless to accomplish it? Join our panelists, who have successfully influenced campus cultures, as they tackle these and other fundamental questions, and offer strategies to broach this all-important conversation on your campus.


As a result of successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  •  Describe how campus culture can affect student success
  •  Describe a student achievement that is valued on your campus and how it might be celebrated
  •  Explain how an operating procedure could be adapted to better reflect the campus's values
  •  Describe how someone in your role at the College can initiate a positive change in campus culture
