House Team Feedback "Interviews"

Draft Proposal for 9/26 RSIT Meeting

 

I.               Overview

Between now and next RSIT meeting, we would organize teams of RSIT members (one student, one staff, and the RLA) to gather feedback/information from each House Team.

 

Houses would be asked to invite those that have been involved in the various steps of the Residence Selection process.  The standard would include:  Housemaster(s), House Manager, Room Assignment Chair, President, and R/O Chair from each house.

 

II.             Interview Outline

Interviews would be open/fluid, but the general outline would be to ask the following questions for each of the major parts of the Residence Selection and Move-In processes:

      What did your House do?

      What went well?

      What could be improved and why?

 

The "parts" of the Residence Selection and Move-In processes are:

      Communications (Residence Guide, I3, other) and Other Preparation Efforts

      Campus Preview Weekend

      Summer Assignment Process (particularly for Cultural Houses and RBA)

      Summer Room Assignments

      Questions/Issues/Inquiries received throughout the summer from first-years

      Initial Move-In

      Welcome Brunch

      Residence Orientation/Exploration Events

      In-House Rush/Rooming

      Mid-Week Moves

      Thursday Night of Orientation House Events

      Post-Orientation Issues/Questions

      Other
