Campus Brief: University offers students methods to voice opinions

Starting this month, students can let the University know what aggravates them.

Through Facebook, Wiki, email and a website, students can voice their concerns about aspects of campus life.

Once students voice their concerns through different channels, an Efficiency Task Force, formed by the University, will investigate students’ concerns and try to find possible solutions.

The task force is made up of “representatives from faculty, staff and students,” said Rodney Rogers, senior vice president for academic affairs and provost, in a campus-wide email sent out April 11.

Rogers encouraged members of the University community to offer their suggestions, according to the email.

The purpose of the task force is to “improve the students’ experience on campus,” said Kallie Durkit, student member of the task force.

When students comment, their input is cataloged so the task force can look over it when they meet, Durkit said.

“[Comments] could be things the students find that are conflicting or problematic with programs, policies or student life in general,” Durkit said.

The task force was set up in early April, and it wants to gather feedback from as many students as possible before the end of the year.

In June, the task force will split into groups which will work on different topics of student concern.

There will be updates on the website as the task force creates and implements new things, according to the email.
