One of the biggest goals and priorities of graduate assistants in the U of L student Activities Office is working to ensure that each U of L student is engaged with the campus community outside of the classroom. We work consistently with Recognized Student Organizations, fraternities and sororities, student programming and other campus offices, staff and faculty to help students feel connected to the campus. We plan programs and workshops, advise students in their own programmatic endeavors, and meet with students one-on-one and in groups to fully engage them on campus.
Student engagement is a contract between students and staff/faculty. It is the obligation of faculty and staff members to provide ample opportunities for students to learn and be interactive with their campus outside of the classroom. This cannot be obtained unless both sides maintain their part of the contract! - Jeremy Johnson, GA-RSOs
I believe that the programs, policies, and relationships student affairs professionals develop supporting student engagement have the potential to enliven students' collegiate experience, augment their personal development, and enrich their academic achievement. - Matthew Vetter, GA- Programming, Student Activities
One of the many aspects of my job is to engage each and every student on campus. I support the programmatic efforts of the fraternity and sorority community and advise them regarding values, programming and service in order for them to make a positive impact on the campus and in the local communities. - Lauren Berman, GA- Greek Life
