…A lot! There has been a total of 674 people respond (as of midnight last night) to the survey. I’m not totally sure yet but I

believe that is about a 14% to 15% response rate. To the left is some of the raw data to date. I’m now working on ways to get the survey results in in a presentable format. I am also at the point where I HAVE to get a website together to begin pulling this all of this together. The survey ends on Friday though I believe I have received most of my responses. It is my hope that next week I can begin telling students about the results…somehow. I have sent out a MEMO to EC, ER, DJ, DrA, and WS and have not had any response as of yet. The MEMO included an invitation to the Nov. 5th Design Jam which is in still in the basic planning stage. It has been a real challenge bringing all stakeholders to one table. I have yet to succeed though people are thinking/talking about it. It seems that the best way to communicate is via email however I am finding this form of communication to be limiting.

I am struggling with coordinating everything correctly, making sure all stakeholders are included while also trying to continue moving the project forward. CJ has given me the names of a few people/students to reach out to and have yet to have the time. I hope to do that today. It is clear that there is a strong interest from students on the issues presented in the survey however, what is critical now is getting the information in a form to begin making formal recommendations to the administration. I hope to be able to do this after the Design Jam though without their participation in the Jam, I’m not sure how comprehensive my recommendations will be. Their feedback is crucial. I’m considering moving forward with the Jam preparations invitations this week regardless and seeing what sort of feedback receive from all parties.

I need to get CW back in the game from SGA as he is an important ally. I’m preparing for a meeting with CJ to go over the survey results and hopefully he can provide me with advice on moving forward and keeping the momentum going. After that–I will reach back out to CW to give him an update and see how we can begin working together on the Jam. Maybe another meeting with DrA is necessary? I’m not sure… I will also be sending out a follow-up to my MEMO today (exactly one week after the first email was sent). Should I not receive a response, I may need to change gears a bit…
