Our team works with passionate student affairs professionals and their students, who are discouraged by the lack of involvement on their campus. We facilitate the creation of a vibrant campus culture in which everyone feels welcomed, connected, and engaged from orientation to graduation.
Just like on a dance floor, every school experiences varying levels of student engagement between those fully involved (student leaders) and those lurking on the edge (apathetic students).
The same tactics to create successful social change on a dance floor – connections, relevancy, models of success, and motivation – also work to increase engagement within any school. DFT provides student leaders a new model for creating community, increasing student engagement, and fostering a culture of retention.
People in the center of a dance have all the fun, meet all the people & experience the best dancing. The same is true for school.
The more involved one is on campus, the more fun they’ll have, the more people they’ll meet, and the more dancing success they’ll have. In this highly engaging and fun keynote, students gain an immediate understanding and desire to get more involved on campus and take advantage of the opportunities a school offers beyond the classroom. Dust off your dance shoes & report to the dance floor!
This program is based on our Amazon.com bestselling book, “First Year Student To First Year Success”.
As part of our mission to help students be more engaged on campus, we know that involvement from the professional staff is a critical part of the equation. Through our specially designed pro dev programs, we help Student Affairs Professionals develop higher levels of motivation and proficiency. From keynotes at conferences such as ACUI, NASPA, and APCA, to on-campus programs for the entire office on team building, vision setting, and strategic planning, we have the perfect programs for your next event.
