The APSU Campus Connection Initiative (CCI) coordinates campus interactions that can lead to student, university, or community success.
CCI fosters the development of a more interconnected, knowledgeable, and adaptable faculty and staff capable of responding quickly and collaboratively to challenges and opportunities. CCI organizes diverse tight-knit faculty or faculty and staff cohorts to both strengthen the sense of campus community and establish networks for more sustainable cross-campus transfers of information and other resources. Each CCI program challenges participants’ time-management skills in order to build their capacities for new initiatives, raises their institutional and contextual awareness, and organizes sustained engagements with diverse perspectives—not only to develop participants’ critical-thinking skills and diversify their problem-solving techniques, but also to encourage institutional thinking over departmental thinking.
Selected faculty or staff from diverse departments, academic colleges, or university divisions dedicate a significant time commitment to learning more about leadership, teaching, advising, or campus initiatives. After acquiring a more comprehensive awareness of university operations, current or upcoming initiatives, trends, and relevant literature, participants work on a project to improve student, university, or community success.
