2019 Purdue System-wide Forum

Thanks to everyone who attended the 2019 Office of the Provost System-wide Forum! 

Not everyone was able to attend both sessions; however, 165 people attended some part of the Forum.  People attended from Purdue Fort Wayne, IUPUI, Purdue Northwest, , Purdue West Lafayette, and Purdue Global. 

The two speakers—Dr. Corey Seemiller on GenZ students and Dr. Beverly Tatum on Resilience and Diversity—gave excellent presentations.  On the feedback survey, close to 80% of the attendees rated both presentations as “very valuable.” 

Here is a sample of excerpted comments:

“Great chance to interact with colleagues from other campuses and hear best practices.”

“I definitely see the value in meeting as a system.  I very much enjoyed both speakers—found their topics relevant and important.”

“Having all Purdue campuses participate was extremely helpful. . . It allowed for a deeper and enriching discussion.  I wish there were more opportunities for all of us to gather as a community and work towards addressing and solving some of the challenges we incur in making students successful on our campuses.” 

“Great speakers and opportunity to get together with colleagues.”

“The two keynote speakers were excellent.  Their presentations were both very valuable.”

“The speakers were great.  They shared valuable information and their presentations were engaging.  Meeting colleagues…was very important and enriching.  It is nice to have the opportunity to see what others are doing, compare and learn from each other.”

“I really like the opportunity to meet and interact with the other campus faculty and staff.”

Thanks again for attending and thanks to the Task Force for their great work!

Please feel free to offer suggestions as we consider what to do next year!
