A Conversation of Understanding – No Decision About Us Without Us: Students Perspectives on Student Success 

This discussion will feature students from throughout the SIU system, who will share their insights  into how student success plays a pivotal role in the educational landscape. The discussion will center on the “no decision without us” principle, emphasizing the significance of including student perspectives in decision-making processes that directly impact students’ educational journeys.

“No Decision About Us Without Us: Students Perspectives on Student Success” will look to foster a deeper understanding of the challenges that students face and the collaborative efforts required to create an inclusive, supportive learning environment and increase retention and graduation rates. The student panelists represent diverse backgrounds and experiences.

The meeting will be available on the SIU System’s YouTube channel.

A Q&A session will follow during which participants can use the YouTube comment section. Questions may be submitted before or during the event by email to doris.williams@siu.edu.

Conversations of Understanding have become a fixture across the SIU System and on our individual campuses. They are a series of exchanges where students, alumni, faculty, staff and the broader SIU communities can share their experiences and thoughts on a variety of themes related to antiracism, diversity, equity and inclusion. We want to be a model for others in higher education and be recognized as a leader in our region and beyond for our work in fostering understanding of relevant contemporary issues.
