Faculty Forum Rescheduled for March 19

The Faculty Forum will continue at 6:30 p.m. March 19 in Violette Hall 1010 when P. Joan Poor and Jeanette Snowball present “Campus Built Heritage and Institutional Loyalty.”

Research has shown that the racial diversity of college/university student populations improves social tolerance and academic performance. However, it has also found that students of color are more likely to drop out than their white counterparts, and to feel isolated and excluded from campus life.

One possible reason for such feelings is the built heritage on campuses, particularly those with colonial-era style, which is often used in college marketing and recruiting.

This research uses student survey data from St. Mary’s College of Maryland in the U.S. and Rhodes University in South Africa to investigate student attitudes towards, and knowledge about, campus built heritage and their perceptions of its impact on student loyalty.

This event was originally schedule for Feb. 26.
