Presidents’ Fireside Chat on Student Involvement | Recap

In an effort to engage students in targeted conversations about student involvement, Presidents Ali and Mablene hosted 10 Roosevelt and Robert Morris student leaders on Monday, November 18 for the first Presidents’ Fireside Chat. The group included undergraduate and graduate students, as well as a wide representation of student organizations and disciplines.

The group openly discussed diversity and inclusion, athletics, performing arts, student organizations, and the desire for greater collaboration between university departments. Additional topics included the motivators that drive students to participate in extracurricular activities and the barriers that keep them from doing so.

Future Fireside Chats will be scheduled in the coming weeks as part of an effort for focused engagement with both institutions’ students, faculty and staff.
