'Bridging the Virtual Divide: Connecting Students to the Resources They Need' - March 30

Please join us for the webinar "Bridging the Virtual Divide: Connecting Students to the Resources they Need," presented by Andrea Gustafson, learning and accommodations specialist in Student Accessibility Services, and Faherty Nielsen, academic adviser in Academic Success, on Tuesday, March 30, from 12:15 to 1:30 p.m. via Zoom. 

The pandemic has made the virtual experience the “new normal”—except it’s anything but normal. Higher education scrambled to ramp up existing virtual resources to meet the need. What we've discovered is that even with everyone’s effort to meet students “where they are,” our new digital reality was missing something essential: warmth. Students want, need, and expect to build relationships, especially with their faculty and staff supports who help them navigate an overwhelming system. Suddenly, the in-person interactions that previously made relationship-building easy were gone. But the void created by a cyberspace of boxes with talking-heads made everyone start thinking out of the box. By building relationships between offices and across campus, the Advising and Student Accessibility Services offices have cultivated a system of improved protocols, coordination, and communication, making relationship-building not only possible but also more effective for student success.
