Learning and Teaching
The Facilitator Training Program is an engagement model that develops student leadership skills and benefits the institution in numerous ways. It was initially created to support the 2010 Partners in Learning Conference, an annual collegewide event. Students have facilitated each of the subsequent annual conferences, and facilitate many other campus and community events. They receive intensive, experiential facilitator training, which builds student confidence and supports their ability to serve as influential change-makers on campus and in their communities. Student facilitators work collaboratively with peers, faculty, staff, and administrators to engage dialogue that has led to inclusiveness, increased student success, and enriched college experiences. Ultimately, the most experienced facilitator trainees mentor and serve as role models for the next group of student facilitators.
