  1. Student Engagement Survey

    Student Engagement Survey

    On behalf of the Office of Student Programming & Life, we invite you to participate in a short survey that will help us provide quality student activities and programming. This year may be unusual, but we know that our community will find unique and creative ways to engage. 

    Based on your feedback and interests, we hope to offer events and experiences in both online and in-person small groups or socially distant formats following the Safe and Healthy Buckeyes guidelines.

    Please note that this survey is neither related nor connected to classroom content decisions, but rather the events and experiences that take place outside of the classroom.

    Your thoughts and feedback will be critical as departments and staff make decisions to enhance student life.  We thank you in advance for sharing your thoughts!

In this session, Kim Sayers shares personal stories of growing into leadership roles one step at time. Learn how she came to make a priority of putting her boots on and doing the work of building a business unit from the ground-up. It takes balanced footwork to earn trust and build respect, which Kim quickly discovered when she was a young professional walking into male-dominated circles. In addition to her personal experiences, you will learn how seeking help, checking your attitude, moving past a victim mindset, and walking with diplomacy play critical roles in growing as a leader and building successful professional relationships.
