Do you have questions about developmental education reform, new student orientation or other topics related to St. Petersburg College?
SPC President Bill Law will offer employees, students and community members an opportunity to ask him those questions and others directly Nov. 12 at 6 p.m. through the live online Listening Post.
The new online question-and-answer format continues the Listening Posts Dr. Law and other top administrators began when they traveled to the college’s various campuses to hear face-to-face from staff and students. Now SPC’s leadership team will offer more people the chance to participate by expanding the Listening Posts to live streaming video and online chat.
The Listening Post is part of an effort by SPC to provide more information to students, employees and the public about higher education topics and to engage them in the conversation
In October, SPC launched the Direct Link blog to showcase higher education topics such as legislative changes that radically change the requirements for placement testing and remediation for certain students.
Posts on the blog come from the president and other members of the college’s leadership team, including SPC vice presidents and deans.
To RSVP for the Nov. 12 Listening Post or submit a question in advance, you can use the response form .
During the Listening Post, the president will talk about the questions he’s received. He also will take questions and comments through a chat feature on the video. People can watch the streamed video, take part in the chat and comment on it through the Direct Link blog.
The college’s Life and Leadership Offices will hold watch parties for the first Listening Post this month. College leadership hope to hold a Listening Post with various speakers each month.
“SPC faculty, staff and students will be able to have access to the data, discussion and thought processes that go into the decision-making at the college,” Law said in a welcome video on the blog. “Get involved in the conversation and let your voice be heard as we all work toward a common goal: The continued success of SPC and our students.”
