Student Hybrid Experience Advisory Group

Assembled by Academic Affairs in 2016, the Student Hybrid Experience (SHE) Advisory Board provides integral input and oversight into issues related to the current state of online, hybrid and technology-assisted education at the University of San Francisco. 

Members are appointed to serve on SHE because of their expertise and interest in digital education and in supporting USF’s growth in this area.

The SHE advisory board invites faculty to submit a proposal to develop a Core course online for Summer 2020 delivery. Proposals may be submitted for any of the Core areas (A, B, C, D, E, and F), by full time faculty, individually or as a group. 4 proposals will be selected in mid-December, with faculty development and course development taking place over the Spring 2020 semester.
