What Matters Most

Engaging the campus community in facilitated discussion of

The Undergraduate Experience

During the Spring 2017 semester, The Undergraduate Experience: Focusing Institutions on What Matters Most (Felten, et al., 2016) will be the focus of campus-wide discussions involving faculty, staff, students, and administrators. The entire campus community is invited to participate in these discussions, which will occur primarily in small groups meeting six times during the semester. The goal of these discussions is to lay the groundwork for meaningful, thoughtful, and intentional strategic planning during 2017-2018 academic year.

  • Small groups of up to 12 participants will meet six times during the semester, led by a designated facilitator.
  • Groups will use the book's framework of six core themes to focus their discussion of "what matters most."
  • Following each meeting, each participant will respond to a brief survey.
  • At the end of the semester, each group will present one idea or recommendation at a concluding event.
