The premise really is as simple as the Golden Rule.
How would you want to be treated? What experience might you want for your own son or daughter? When you invest in your future with a large debt looming as a result, what do you think you should expect?
Every goal – every task – ultimately leads back to developing and furthering an environment that nurtures and supports learning and discovery for students.
Here’s what we know. Administrators spend every day looking for ways to take care of their students. Some days that means budget prioritization. Some days that means faculty negotiations. And some days that means strategic planning. Every goal – every task – ultimately leads back to developing and furthering an environment that nurtures and supports learning and discovery for students.
But most of the time students don’t think the same way as administrators. Their needs, expectations and priorities are different.
They want to be treated like they matter. They want convenient parking. They want an advisor to be there when his office hours say he will. They want to feel their professors care about how they’re doing. If they have to stand in line, they want the employee to be helpful, patient and kind when it is their turn.
So, how do we bridge that gap between the administrator and the student? How does the caring collegiate administrator stay informed and aware of what her students are actually experiencing?
