Announcing the Annual Out-of-the-Box Events!

OOTB 2016-- Out of the Box and Beyond the Margins-Connecting with the modern student

This winter 2016 OOTB was preceded by a "Book club" discussion.

Kristen Renn and Robert Reason, College Students in the United States: Characteristics, experiences and outcomes, 2012

College Students in the United States accounts for contemporary and anticipated student demographics and enrollment patterns, a wide variety of campus environments and a range of outcomes including learning, development, and achievement. Throughout the book, the differing experiences, needs, and outcome of students across the range of "traditional" (18-24 years old, full-time students) and non-traditional (for example, adult and returning learners, veterans, recent immigrants) are highlighted. The book is organized, for use as a stand-alone resource, around Alexander Astin's Inputs-Environment-Outputs (I-E-O) framework.

The Dean's office purchased the books for the first 20 Faculty interested in participating.

The ideas generated during our Bb conversation were used for the  OOTB discussions.  The OOTB panel discussions addressed the challenges of "connecting with the modern student" and will feature these guests:

  • Aaron Haight (Dean of Students Office)
  • Eric Klingensmith (Counseling)
  • Kathleen Vanderveen (Inclusion and Equity/DSR)
  • Colleen Lindsay Bailey (Housing - Mapworks Data)
  • Takeelia Garrett (Housing and Ombuds)
