Use surveys, discussions, and meetings to get to know your students and colleagues

Getting to know your students and colleagues allows you to think about your interactions from their perspectives and to help everyone develop a sense of belonging. Creating an inclusive and empathetic environment requires that members of the campus community use multiple ways to get to know students and colleagues. These efforts can include surveys, discussions, and meetings that are designed to develop stronger personal connections.
