WICOH - Western's Interdisciplinary Community Office Hours. Who are you? Anyone willing to host an office hour with the intent of building an interdisciplinary community.   What do you do?   Find a colleague in another college (i.e. Interdisciplinarity!) Introduce yourselves to each other’s students by sharing something that might resonate with students Set aside office hours to talk to students about life  – this is your Interdisciplinary Community Office Hour.  Why would you do it – Student perspective? Even if a student loves your course content, that student may not share a common identity with you. WICOH gives your students another way to find a mentor that clicks.   Why would you do it – Non-student perspective? You’ll get to break out of your silo to enhance your network across campus in a student-centered way that builds community.   Why should it be interdisciplinary? Students enjoy getting to know faculty as humans. It’s easier to do this when you’re not also evaluating student performance.   Does it work? Students stated on their course evaluations that they greatly appreciated the option, even if they didn’t stop by for the office hour.
