What is "Student Engagement"? Collaborating with Student Life to Create Trivia Night Events

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Generating student interest in library outreach programs at community colleges can be very difficult, given the variety of unique student populations we serve. Partnering with Student Life is an effective way for academic libraries to leverage existing connections for increased student engagement. Jackson College's Trivia Nights program has proven fruitful for both departments: it has become one of the more popular events for Student Life, as well as a valuable marketing tool for the library. This session will discuss the logistics of planning and coordinating a Trivia Nights program at your institution, and will also explore how we as librarians can and should think creatively about outreach programming in general.

Participants will:
  • Learn how to think creatively about collaboration with other departments for outreach events.
  • Have the tools to create trivia events on their own campuses.
