Student Senator Ashley Samson represents the interests of students in the College of Education and Human Performance (CEDHP) and is herself a sophomore in the college’s Secondary Education program. On her most recent visit, Dean Pamela “Sissi” Carroll, Associate Dean Jesse “JP” Mendez and Samson talked about ways to improve the student experience. They discussed the advising process for new and pending students, as well as the college’s social media platforms as a means to broadcast even more curricular information and college-specific events to further foster a sense of community within the college.
Based on these conversations, Samson plans to work together with the college’s Director of Communications to explore new ways to disperse information to students. She also aims to meet with the advising office to identify additional ways to relay services offered to students. Lastly, she intends to provide personal input to aid in the university-wide assessment of the advising process currently underway.
Samson shares a passion with the college for the quality of education of students. “My main responsibility is to advocate on the behalf of the student body.” This is an ongoing collaboration between Samson and the college, and the student senator plans to meet with the Dean’s office at least once each semester to discuss ways to improve the college based on student feedback.
“We are very excited to work with Student Senator Ashley Samson as she advocates for the best interest of CEDHP students,” Mendez said after speaking with the student senator.
