Listening Tours

  • Group reviewed the questionnaires from Chun & Evans’ Conducting an Institutional Diversity Audit in Higher Education, and decided that for the Advisory Council’s purposes, to create our own questionnaires.  The purpose of the questionnaire is to learn more about what each AVP unit is doing in the three focus areas of the Advisory Council during the listening tour.
    • Pairs of Advisory Council members and units were determined for the listening tour:
      • Ray DeJesus & Zo Sediqi – Housing & Sustainability; Student Success
      • Kat Yoffie & Shay Malone – Dean of Students; Student Life
      • Alicia Bervine & Shanna Robinson – Student Affairs Central Staff; Enrollment Management
