Student Engagement

Over the past nine years, The Grace E. Harris Leadership Program has developed seven projects commonly grouped under the topic Student Engagement. The projects reflect different approaches to school spirit generation, student retention, student mentoring and student financial aid. Of the seven projects that our team reviewed, six were implemented or partially implemented. It was not uncommon to see GEHLI team ideas incorporated into unrelated University initiatives, basically achieving the goals of the project, but without the team involvement.
