Great Expectations: Classroom Insights from First-Year Student Surveys

NYU’s Office of Student Success surveys incoming first-year students on their college expectations: What kind of relationship do students expect to have with faculty? What support do they expect from NYU? What work are they preparing themselves to do? The data illuminates the pressures that motivate students, providing faculty with insight into how to rethink syllabi to support student success. In this workshop, facilitators will share the survey data and showcase what one academic department has done with the findings. Attendees will discuss how they, too, might apply this information to their courses.
