In addition to semester-long student-faculty partnerships, the Pedagogical Partnership Program (P3) allows faculty to engage in briefer, more targeted partnerships with students by working with a P3 Student Ambassador. Student Ambassadors provide faculty with just-in-time feedback regarding pedagogy as tailored to the faculty’s specific needs. For example, a Student Ambassador can:

  • Review syllabi for tone, clarity, and utility for students
  • Review course policies for inclusion, equity, and transparency 
  • Observe a class session and offer feedback on instructor facilitation, content organization, classroom dynamics, student engagement/participation, etc.
  • Meet for a consultation on various teaching challenges
