Student Listening Sessions 2022

In an effort to better support our NatSci students, we hosted listening sessions to understand student needs in Spring 2022. These sessions were focused on particular student identities but students were welcome to sign up for as many sessions as they would like.

Each session had two facilitators: MSU employees (faculty, specialists, staff, or postdocs). Some  undergraduate student sessions were also facilitated by graduate students.

Each student who participated received ONE $25 gift certificate of their choice from Kroger, Target, or DoorDash.

Sessions were ZOOM and were recorded. Recordings are kept confidential and only used for reviewing student feedback.
