A Culture of Service; A Commitment of Excellent Service in Today’s Higher Education Environment

Join us in discussing how we can actualize a comprehensive environment of service provision for all that encompasses Radford University. This two-hour session will assist us with

  • Understanding what customer service really means
  • What role it plays in higher education
  • How “service” needs must adapt to the changing landscape of our audience, including generational differences.

Let us begin the movement together, assessing how we can merge processes, collaborate with departments and form best practices to build a culture of service.

Who should attend:  We encourage all employees to attend, especially those that deal with students directly.  We will be offering a similar course later in the year that will involve a much broader scope.
