Student engagement is a vital part of the college and university experience, ranging from activities at the student union to international coffee hours and much more across an institution's landscape. Student engagement allows students to interact with one another and form meaningful connections and immerse themselves in experiences which will prepare them for life during and after college. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the way in which students engage on campus has shifted, with an increase in student demand for online and hybrid activities at an institution. Administrators, faculty, and staff can support students through creating, fostering, and supporting meaningful engagement opportunities which meet students where they are at.
