Bellevue College (BC) is seeking your input to improve student services that are part of the Leading Change for Student Success project! You may or may not be familiar with student services like the New Student Orientation, the Welcome Center, BC Guided Pathways, Early Alerts, First-Year Seminar, the BC website, BC tutoring services, and Education Plans, to name a few. Even if you haven’t heard of all of these services, we still want to hear from you! We would also¬†value hearing more about the best way to contact you with information about student services and your preferences for online/hybrid/in-person learning.

How can I provide feedback? We welcome you to participate in one of a series of BC student focus groups taking place the first week of March. We have partnered with Pacific Research and Evaluation(PRE), an external research firm, to conduct these focus groups so you can provide honest, transparent feedback. The PRE team will guide a conversation about your student experience with a variety of student services, how these services can be improved, the best way to reach you and increase awareness of services, and whether you prefer online, in-person, or hybrid learning. 

What is a virtual focus group? Think of a virtual focus group as an informal Zoom conversation with fellow BC students about your student experience. These focus groups are confidential and will last about 1 hour. You will have the opportunity to provide feedback verbally and through the Zoom chat.

The following days and times have been set aside for the focus groups:

  • Tuesday March 1st at 11:30-12:30pm
  • Tuesday March 1st at 5:00-6:00pm
  • Wednesday March 2nd at 12:00-1:00pm

Signing up is easy! All you have to do is click this booking link and sign up for your preferred focus group date and time.

A confirmation email and calendar invite with access information for the focus group will be automatically generated after registering. We can accommodate up to ten conversation partners per focus group. If you have any questions about the focus groups, please contact andrea@pacific-research.org.
