As we enter the second decade of the 21st Century the need to maximize the effectiveness and impact of the university experience has never been greater. The productive utilization of higher education resources demands that all sectors of the university work together in mutually beneficial partnerships working toward the creation of high impact student engagement. The pandemic has put additional pressures on higher education, challenging both academic and student affairs to utilize technology to maintain connection with students thereby adding new layers of complexity to an already diverse field. Secure, safe, efficient, effective bridges spanning the oft too unconnected domains of academic and student affairs need to be constructed. This presentation will create opportunities to explore the need for such partnerships as well as provide suggestions on how such structures can be created and sustained.
By the end of the webinar participants will:
- Describe the past, present, and future need for student and academic affairs partnerships.
- Develop high-impact strategies that engage students with learning, teaching, other students, teachers and staff, research, and with the community.
- Apply technology apps to support high-impact student engagement in and outside the classroom.
