This is the second of five forums to engage students.
By Wally Perez
The Student Government Association at St. Philip’s College and the Student District Council will host a “student dialogue and listening forum” 11 a.m.– 1 p.m. Oct. 21 in the Heritage Room of the campus center.
The forum is sponsored by the office of the chancellor and will provide students the opportunity to engage with Chancellor Bruce Leslie and other Alamo Colleges’ leaders during a Q&A.
The forum is open to all Alamo Colleges students.
Angela McPherson Williams, director of student success at St. Philip’s, said the event is a great opportunity.
“This is wonderful initiative to get feedback from all students regarding their educational experience at Alamo Colleges,” Williams said.
Students will get to address issues that concern them, she said.
Students will be seated at tables forming groups of five to eight and answer questions provided by the office of the chancellor.
Topics include the three most important issues affecting students at the colleges, what can the colleges and district do to address them, which of these would be a top priority and what can the colleges do to more full engage students about these issues, according to the guidelines for the forum.
This college’s forum occurred Sept. 16, and major issues included parking problems and the difficult enrollment process students encountered.
Other forums will be Nov. 11 at Northwest Vista College; Nov. 12 at Northeast Lakeview College; and Dec. 3 at St. Philip’s College Southwest Campus.
