Course Crunch: Scheduling for Student Success

Last semester, thanks to the “Becoming a Student Ready University Initiative,” we read Sara Goldrick-Rab’s Paying the Price, Beverly Daniel Tatum’s Why are all the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? and Cia Verschelden’s Bandwidth Recovery. This year we will tackle a series of “tough” issues that percolated through our community: course-scheduling, textbook affordability, and bias in student evaluations. Our first Tough Talk will be Course Crunch: Scheduling for Student Success on Oct. 1, 2018 from 3 to 4:30 p.m. in the 1965 Room, University Union, Green Bay Campus. Due to the cross-departmental nature of these issues, staff, faculty and students are welcome.

Please register here if you plan to attend.
