Centering student voices is a critical practice for colleges and universities seeking to make improvements through an equity lens. For these improvements to be sustainable in the long term and advance student success, redesign efforts must prioritize student experiences. But how do you do this effectively? What does this work entail? In this webinar, the Student-Centered Design team at SJI will share more about centering student voices as a critical practice for improving equity, provide a framework for using student voice, and share tips and strategies on how to gather and center student feedback and insights in college operations and initiatives.
