Community Conversation 2 and Walkthroughs


Community Conversation 2

More than 400 staff attended three sessions of Community Conversation 2 which focused on our current culture. In particular, we identified behaviors that we need to continue and stop in order to build upon our three shared organizational values identified as a Student Affairs community. Those shared values are communication, honesty/integrity, and respect, which serve to guide our behavior as we strive our aspirational culture statement:“Student Affairs is a great workplace where staff trust the people they work with, take pride in what they do, and feel a sense of community in support of the student experience.”

On April 6th, we have asked you to cast your vote on the top voted behaviors our staff identified during Community Conversation 2. More than 200 staff have voted. Here are top 4 behaviors to start or continue in order to demonstrate our shared values. To see the full list, click here
