Making a College Work V: Enhancing the student experience

  • Date: Thursday, July 10, 2014
  • Time: 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
  • Location: Preus Library, Hovde Lounge

How do we help students get the most out their time at Luther? What might we do differently?

 Facilitator: Corey Landstrom, Vice President and Dean for Student Life


Each Thursday throughout June and July we will hold two discussions – one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The morning sessions will be built around the thread – “Making a College Work.” In these sessions we will discuss various aspects of the governance of Luther College, with a focus on what we do and what we might do to help us thrive as an institution moving forward. The afternoon sessions – “Interacting with Students in the Classroom and Beyond” – are devoted to teaching and learning. These sessions require no preparation and are intended as a chance for us to discuss ideas important to our work together. More intensive discussions or workshops may grow out of individual sessions as interest warrants.

A new topic will be covered each week for each of the two themes. Faculty will receive a $25 stipend for any two sessions attended throughout June and July.
