Puget Sound supervisors say that because of these conversations, students

...recognize their growth and all of the things that they are learning.
...realize that their work matters, and take pride in their ability to represent the university.
...are energized by identifying opportunities to utilize their talents.
...feel validated—recognizing their impact on the department.

Simply taking a few minutes to reflect with a student a couple of times a semester can
have an incredible impact on their ability to draw connections and build on their
experiences at work.
