How King’s UC creates a monthly connection opportunity for students: Editorial


In a recent editorial, Ashley Mowreader discusses how King’s University College Dean of Students Joe Henry connects with students through a regular drop-in connection opportunity. Every month, Henry sets up a booth on campus and invites students to stop by the booth to ask questions, give feedback, or get help connecting with resources. Henry also livestreams these sessions to expand his reach. This strategy has helped Henry connect with students in their own space and gather feedback that can be used to improve the student experience. Henry encourages administrators looking to do something similar to choose a consistent time and place to connect with students; work with campus partners; have varying, relevant topics; and create a brand to help students remember the name and event.
