Join us as we hear from Dr. Denise Wilson on the importance of relationships and belonging to student engagement. 

As one of the first points of entry for students in the academic world, faculty can become some of the most influential figures in a student’s college experience. In the larger picture of student engagement faculty can also play pivotal roles in a student’s sense of belonging within their academic communities. Dr. Denise Wilson, Associate Professor of Engineering Education at University of Washington, and her team have spent five years exploring the role of student belonging on academic engagement at five diverse institutions across the country. Join us as we hear about the important roles that student-faculty and peer relationships can play in both the undergraduate and post-graduate experience. 

This event is hosted by the College of Engineering and the Center for Research on Lifelong STEM Learning.
