Student Forums

What are Student Forums?

Student forums are events in which members of a selected student cohort (i.e. of a program, school, faculty) are invited to come and tell student representatives about their experiences (both positive and negative) and to highlight areas for potential improvement. These forums can be a formal roundtable discussion to talk through specific issues, or can be an informal lunch or gathering to simply hear from students about their experiences more generally.

The benefits of student forums?
Often student forums are more successful than traditional methods of feedback such as surveys because they encourage one on one interactions and can provide feedback and solutions at the same time. Student forums also help build relationships between students and staff members because they are more personal and students feel like they are being listened to.
