You Text, We Listen!

W&M&You is an information-gathering tool for the Provost's Student Advisory Group and "5 Things to Know This Week" working group. By opting-in, users receive periodic texts from campus administration asking what they think, how they feel, or what they want related to a particular question.

Users are able to submit their opinion quickly and easily by replying to the text message. Responses available to advisory and working groups are de-identified and anonymous to protect participant privacy. Registered user information and identifiable responses are confidentially maintained by IT. If a response triggers serious concern regarding the safety of a user or the community, staff will escalate the concern appropriately (which may involve connecting the response with an identified user and appropriate follow up action to protect life or safety).

W&M&You was originally initiated in Summer 2020, when the Provost’s Office and Student Affairs partnered with IT to seek real-time student input concerning pressing questions related to planning for the fall semester and beyond as W&M navigated the COVID-19 pandemic. In Fall 2020, W&M&You became available to faculty and staff. Poll results and project reports from June 2020 through December 2021 are archived for review.
