Free Coffee for A’s!!
As an Associate Dean, students don’t typically run to see me if everything is going well. However, as an engagement and motivation strategy, I’ve offered a gift card to the NWTC Campus Buzz for every student who would take the time to come to my office and show me an “A” on either a major exam or assessment. This has served to help students view my position as Associate Dean as a resource rather than a disciplinarian and also to continually motivate me to see all of the outstanding work our students and instructors are doing.
