Maintaining Communication between Students and University Administration
Increasing transparency and communication between students and administration is vital for developing culture change and improving campus response. From spring 2015 through winter 2018, UCSB has held four campus-wide public town halls. Administration and students have also organized eight centralized monthly meetings in order to dialogue together.
In spring 2017, administrators across departments made outreach to student organizations to attend meetings to elicit feedback and to further reach student voices. This outreach practice is commonly known as “Student Organization Listening Sessions.” These sessions are small group discussions for student leaders to express concerns, feedback, and suggestions for change. To sign up for your organization to be a part of this effort please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
In January 2019, all ten CARE offices across University of California submitted a united response to proposed Title IX regulations by US Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. Read Comments on Proposed Title IX Regulations.
