7. Students Needed: Discussion Groups Regarding the CCSF Student Experience

The CCSF Office of Student Equity and Success want to hear from students about their campus and classroom experiences. They have partnered with Harder+Company Community research to conduct group discussions with students on campus. We are currently looking for students to participate in discussions and share their thoughts and ideas for how CCSF can improve the campus and classroom environments.
We are looking to conduct group discussions with students who identify with any of the following groups:
  • Undocumented/AB 540
  • Lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, queer, transgender
  • Muslim, Arab, or Middle Eastern
  • Foster youth
  • Veterans
  • Non-US born and attended between 3 & 6 years of middle or high school in the US
  • Having a mental health challenge
  • Having a learning difference or disability
Group discussions will be on-campus. Food and a $25 gift card will be provided. All group discussions will be confidential. 
If you are interested in joining a group, complete a short survey and we will follow-up with details about date, time, and location.
The student populations were chosen as a result of a number of factors, including feedback from students, faculty, staff and administrators. This feedback identified a need for more information in order for CCSF to better understand the strengths, experiences, and challenges students in these populations may be experiencing.

Please contact Shya Castillo at scastillo@harderco.com if you have any questions.
