- The UM Student Engagement Planner project was initiated through the UMTC Office
for Student Affairs and funded with a $90,000 SPIF Award. This planner, customized for each campus, will help
UMM students find opportunities.
Read about the 2006 SPIF Award Winners. The
Student Engagement Planner is designed to intentionally link students to meaningful experiences outside of the classroom.
Students would be able to search a wide-range of engagement opportunities that match their academic interests, outcome
development needs, and/or personal interests. Units would be able to work with students to develop an intentional and
customized "critical path of engagement" from the freshmen to senior year, which could be tailored to specific academic
majors and disciplines.
This project was selected because it will fundamentally enhance the student experience at the University of Minnesota. It
is directly aligned with the direction of a top three public research university and fits with a number of other
improvement initiatives such as the GradPlanner project.
