Stories of Successful Learning

Living it! Learning it! Leading it!

In concert with the university’s learn by doing approach, University Housing Services has participated in the 2nd annual Stories of Successful Learning. Our Residence Life Team developed student led educational programs focusing on financial planning and recognizing personal biases through diversity education in each of our residence halls. Through values based education, students took part in both pre and post surveys; giving them the opportunity to self report their personal findings about themselves through interactive discussions and written responses. For more information about Stories of Successful Learning, please click here.

This educational programming in the “living rooms” of our residents has allowed us to become more intentional in the types of programs we provide students. We have truly learned by doing!!
