Do you want to more fully understand or connect with our students? This session will share the outcomes from the A Portrait of Us project, an interactive exercise with the newest cohort of first-year AU students that asked them to namevalues and goals for themselves and for the AU community. We will use project findings to foster community-building efforts between faculty, staff, and students inside and outside the classroom. Additionally, this information may help to address any challenges faculty may be facing in connecting with students.
Describe the values, perspectives and aspirations of new AU students.
Apply students’ values to inform class discussions, assignments, and/or programs.
