In the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we all had to learn to quickly adapt our work in the face of relentless waves of unprecedented challenges. Although we don’t know what the future holds, we do know that the need for our work in student affairs to be nimble and adjustable is now more important than ever. George Mason University’s Housing and Residence Life has been utilizing a curricular approach to student learning and engagement for several years. This model has allowed us to connect better to our mission, University Life learning domains, and has provided leverage to navigate the storm of ever-changing pandemic needs to create a supportive and educational experience for our students. A curricular approach asks us to have a core understanding of who we are as departmental units and educators. Through that understanding, a curricular approach provides a wealth of tools for quickly pivoting student learning without losing sight of who we are and what we do. Join us to learn more about the curricular approach to student affairs and how the balance of structure and flexibility within this model can help you succeed in our next unprecedented time!
