Student forum on improving higher education

Students: Do you want to voice your concerns and suggestions about the quality and methods of instruction in higher education? The Colorado State University Center for Public Deliberation's student forum on improving higher education is an opportunity for you to do just that.

Improving higher education

The Colorado State University Center for Public Deliberation, or CPD, will host a student forum titled, How can we improve the quality of higher education? on Saturday, April 4 from 1 to 4 p.m. The event will take place at The Drake Center, 802 W. Drake Road, Fort Collins, Colo.

Light refreshments will be provided.

Be part of the solution  

This forum will focus particularly on hearing the student voice, and gather concerns and suggestions about the quality and methods of instruction in particular. The CPD is planning on continuing the project in the fall, at which time they hope to also engage faculty, staff, and administration alongside students in these important discussions.

This initial forum, however, will focus primarily on students. Non-partisan student facilitators will moderate the forum, and the discussion will be documented to ensure that concerns, ideas and questions will be addressed. 

CSU Center for Public Deliberation

The CPD was founded in 2006 and is dedicated to enhancing local democracy through improved public communication and community problem solving. The organization coordinates and hosts numerous events in the Fort Collins and Loveland communities.

Community issues forums focus on local and national issues, including various workshops tied to public participation and civic engagement. Student associates are trained as non-partisan facilitators and conveners, and focus on helping the public unite and address critical issues in a more effective manner.
