Are you interested in the best ways to support your underrepresented and non-traditional students? Why not ask them directly? Veterans, LGBTQ+ students, and students with disabilities have unique needs that faculty may not have considered. This session will discuss preparing to host student lead panels. These panels are designed to give the students the opportunity to share what is most beneficial to them directly with faculty. Hearing personal stories for students more powerfully connects with faculty and leads to positive changes in the classroom to improve student learning.
