The University of South Florida has a robust faculty and academic partner engagement model via our academic initiatives within Residential Education. The success of these programs is rooted in strong partnerships between professional staff, academic partners, and faculty in the creation of intentional academic initiatives. Therefore, we recognize the importance of on-boarding our faculty members and academic partners as well as preparing our professional staff to leverage their partnerships. In this session, participants will develop strategies for faculty and academic partner recruitment, on-boarding, program development, and collaboration conducive to student success. Additionally, attendees will gain insight on the experiences of a faculty currently serving as a FIR and an academic partner serving as a Living Learning Community advisor who will share their perspectives on engaging with students outside of the classroom.
