Black and Gold Report Card
The faculty, professional academic staff, and students participating in the School’s Black and Gold Committee are taking a lead role in exploring and developing other new ways to ensure that the quality of the student experience in the Lubar School of Business is enhanced. Successful initiatives include:
- Created a group study area in Lab B for groups to collaborate on class projects.
- Created a dedicated lab environment where students may work in developing group projects and presentations.
- Designed and implemented a series of special events (by undergraduate major) for pre-business and business-intended students. These sessions address the Black and Gold Committee’s objective to foster student retention and a sense of community. The Major Transition programs offer students an opportunity to meet faculty, staff, members of professional business student organizations, and recent alumni.
- Participated actively in the campus-wide Academic and Career Advising Action Team activities. A recent initiative is the development of an online Advisor Survey. Students signing in at the Undergraduate Advising Center are send an email asking them to fill out an electronic advisor evaluation. Comments are shared monthly with the academic advisors to ensure continuous improvement.
- Required all teaching assistants to meet campus SPEAK standards.
- Developed a series of “Dual Expectations” (using as a prototype those developed by the original Black and Gold Commission and subsequently incorporated into the presentation made during MBA/MS Student Orientation sessions).
- Developed a new format for the annual teaching assistant orientation sessions to strengthen its helpfulness to students.
- Inaugurated Student Organizations fair in 2006 so students can become familiar with, and join, Lubar School professional organizations.
- Drafted a Code of Ethical Conduct for students.
- The Black & Gold Committee provides ongoing review of the School's Differential Tuition program.
- Surveyed student interest in mid-term faculty course evaluations.
- A Supplies & Equipment Committee worked on adding amenities to labs.
