It Takes a Village: The roles of faculty, staff, and family in student transformation
Session Time and Location
Advance HE Pre-function Area
Numerous opportunities for students to construct their own senses of self and relationships with the world are presented during a student’s undergraduate career. A variety of individuals, including faculty, staff, family, and friends, have the potential to facilitate these opportunities and play an important role in a student’s educational transformation. This project uses data from Centre College’s Honor Walk, a ceremony during which graduating students have the opportunity to honor one or two individuals who have played important roles in their undergraduate careers, to shed light on the relationships, interactions, and opportunities, from a student’s perspective, that transform their undergraduate experiences.
