In a story in Campus Activities Programming magazine, a publication of the National Association for Campus Activities (NACA), Jenn DeLuca, assistant director for student programs at the College of the Holy Cross, explained how to increase student group effectiveness by emphasizing accountability.
DeLuca, who co-wrote the article Matt Miller, the assistant director of student involvement and leadership at Bridgewater State University, stressed the importance of reflection. “Every so often, we all need to think about our impact on the groups we advise,” she wrote. “We professionals must remember that, as we develop and grow, we are still working with new students each year who are excited to bring new ideas to the group.”
DeLuca also advised that the best way to produce strong group results is to compose a list of expectations and to make everyone accountable for realizing them. “Take time to lay out expectations from an advisor’s standpoint and have students contribute their expectations,” recommended DeLuca.
“Have the organization as a whole compare and reconcile a list,” she continued. “Everyone should agree.”
