Student Forums

Student forums are events in which members of a student cohort (i.e. of a program, school, faculty) talk to student representatives or staff about their experiences and suggest improvements. 

These forums can be a formal panel discussion to talk through specific issues, or a general meeting of an entire student cohort, school, or faculty. They may take place in-person, virtually or in hybrid modes. 

Student forums have been effectively used to discuss concerns with students regarding things like course structure, syllabus contents, and even infrastructure changes.

Student forums are useful because:

  • they encourage real-time interactions and provide feedback and solutions at the same time.
  • help build healthier relationships between students and staff members.
