You Said, We Heard campaign launches

Feb 4, 2020

As part of a “Preparing for a Life Well-Lived 2025” Strategic Plan initiative to better understand the student experience, a committee of students, staff and faculty came together to review over 2000 student and alumni comments! The comments collected are from survey results received during Fall 2018 through Summer of 2019 regarding the student experiences at Flagler College.

As part of a “Preparing for a Life Well-Lived 2025” Strategic Plan initiative to better understand the student experience, a committee of students, staff and faculty came together to review over 2000 student and alumni comments! The comments collected are from survey results received during Fall 2018 through Summer of 2019 regarding the student experiences at Flagler College. 

“To our students: we have heard you, and we are still listening! Thanks to your extremely helpful comments and suggestions, you will now see improvements and needed changes around our beautiful campus and within College operations,” said initiative lead Brian Nesselrode. “Your voices are being heard, and it’s important that you know that. This is only the beginning, so please keep talking to us, and keep your feedback coming. Through that, your College will keep being the best it can be.”

The goal of the committee is to ensure students that their voice is being heard AND that actions are being taken (or perhaps have already happened) based on the feedback. As a result, the You Said, We Heard campaign is launching.

The “You Said” portion is the actual student comments gathered from these surveys. The comments were then assigned to the appropriate department on campus in order to figure out how we could take action, or perhaps if action had already been taken or was in the works.

The “We Heard” portion is what we are telling students we have done, are in the process of doing, plan to do or in a rare occurrence, can’t do and why. 

Below is an initial list of the items we are currently working on to get this campaign started. Students: If you’ve ever filled out a student survey, shared with a friend an annoyance or recommendation for improvement, you may see it on here. If you don’t, it’s okay! We will be working throughout the semester to highlight different areas where You Said, We Heard! Just look for the logo and you’ll know it’s something we’re working on because we heard you.

  2. Info on termites: what to look for, how to deal with them and how to report them

And in case you missed it, in January we delved a little deeper into our Strategic Plan core value of Respectful and Inclusive Community. This video highlights some of the events, programs and initiatives meant to contribute to the campus-wide conversation happening.
