Business students looking to have their voices and suggestions heard for the betterment of their program are now being encouraged to attend ongoing focus group meetings that began last week at NAIT.
The Business Focus Group held its first meeting Sept. 12 with the purpose to hear both positive feedback from students as well as what could be improved going forward. Led by Associate Dean Academic in the School of Business Gina Jackson and VP Academic Brenda Needham, agenda items are created based on the content brought to the meetings by students attending school full time, part-time and those completing online courses.
Word of mouth successfully generated enough interest for the first meeting, with future discussions scheduled approximately once a month in the CAT Building, Room 200C. In an effort to accommodate all students’ schedules, the sessions will take place from 4-6 p.m., with the next focus group booked Oct. 11. Subsequent meetings will run Nov. 8, Dec. 6, Jan. 10, Feb. 14 and a tentative final meet date of March 14, 2018 before the academic calendar ends.
All information collected during the gatherings is confidential unless issues or concerns require further attention from appropriate officials.
A distribution list for upcoming meetings has been made and students looking to receive e-mails regarding future talks are asked to e-mail Brenda Needham at BrendaN@nait.ca
