WATERLOO – Leanne Holland Brown, dean of students at Laurier’s Waterloo campus, will give Laurier students the chance to ask her their burning questions when she takes over the university’s Twitter account March 5 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Students are invited to tweet their questions using the #AskDeanLeanne hashtag and Holland Brown will answer via @LaurierNews on Twitter. Students can send in their questions ahead of time, or tweet during the event. Holland Brown will be seated in the Concourse at Laurier’s Waterloo campus, and students are also welcome to stop by to ask their questions in person.
“I am looking forward to connecting with students in a new way, and to talking about issues that are important to them,” said Holland Brown. “The best part of my job is meeting our students, hearing about their Laurier experience, and understanding what we can do better to support student success.”
Last fall, Adam Lawrence, the dean of students at Laurier’s Brantford campus, hosted a virtual #AskDeanAdam event via the @LaurierNews Twitter account. The event was a success and generated significant student engagement, ranging from questions about the dean’s favourite band, to what leadership skills he thinks student should develop, to his top priorities for developing the graduate student experience. The goal is to host one of these events featuring the deans of students at least once a semester.
