Improving our classes for student success
Our professors need to not only teach the material for the class but also help students learn about the resources and events on campus. They also need to be provided training on how to more flexible and compassionate towards students needs - recognizing that they are more than a student in their classroom. They need to humanize the learning experience. Our goal is to graduate but unsupportive faculty create barriers that add to the overall difficulty of our academic journey.
Additionally, classrooms do not serve us. Classrooms do not provide an environment that we can thrive in. Often small desks do not allow for us to use our computers and notepads at the same time and the chairs are uncomfortable. Our classrooms need to have more culture inside of them. We can include the art and beauty that we see outside the classroom, inside, to create a more inspiring environment.
