What is student voice?

Student voice is any expression of any learner regarding anything related to education and describes the distinct perspectives and actions of students throughout schools focused on education. Student voice is giving students the ability to influence learning to include policies, programs, contexts and principles.

Student Voice activities will take place outside of the classroom in a volunteer setting. Instructors recommend students for the student voice committee, but the committee is open to any willing participant. Student Voice interactives students with faculty and staff.  Information, meeting minutes, and a calendar of events is located on the ANC Portal Page under Resources.

Reflection Boxes

Questions are distributed each week around campus that encourage students to use their voice on topics that the committee has decided are necessary to poll students about and gain their opinions. These questions engage the students by allowing them to write down comments anonymously and allowing the ANC staff to respond to those comments via our portal page. Some questions are activity and fun where others are tied into student learning.

Questions asked:

  • Student voice will be hosting activities for ANC staff and students to do together. What type of games and activities would you want to do with instructors?
  • What social media platform do you use the most?
  • How can ANC make learning fun for you?
