In this interview Seth explains how he reached out across the state of Iowa and helped create a "community of colleagues". In short, 18 campuses came together this past school year to coordinate 142 virtual events! And, it was all inspired by a question from his young daughter. "What are your friends doing?" Seth explains how it went from "cold-calls" to friendships and a year of learning and shared experiences. He did not anticipate the level of home-grown professional development that came through the experience of planning with his statewide colleagues. At the heart of it, Seth was seeking to find a way to create a better experience his students at Kirkwood and wound up creating a better experience for thousands of students across the state of Iowa. Let this be the model for your region too. Listen to the conversation and hear Seth's hopes and ideas for the next year and look below for a link to "The Student Life Hub".
