Facilitation Services

The Facilitation Center’s professional staff has more than 30 years of experience facilitating a diverse array of meetings. Our most common services are listed below; however, this is not a complete list, as our services can be expanded based on client needs. If our professional staff does not have the specific expertise a client needs for a project, we can work through internal partnerships at the University to fulfill a broader array of needs.

  • DISC Behavioral Profiles
  • Onsite Facilitation
  • Meeting Design and Preparation
  • Meeting Logistics
  • Facilitation Tools and Supplies
  • Registration Tracking and Reporting

Group Size

The Center has facilitated meetings for small groups (less than 10) and very large groups (100+). Depending on the client’s needs and the type of meeting, we may have recommendations regarding group size and what we have found to work best. For example, a DACUM Occupational Analysis works best with a panel of six to eight participants.

Where We Facilitate

The Center can facilitate meetings in various settings, and through the years, we have facilitated meetings almost everywhere imaginable! We have facilitated meetings on campus and within the local community, as well as across the country including Arizona, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New York, Oregon, Virginia, and Washington, to name a few.

While we can facilitate in just about any space, some spaces are more ideal than others. We also have guidelines we follow regarding small group work, display thinking, and other factors to consider; therefore, we prefer to consult with a client on location before it is determined.

An Example of Our Work

The 2010 Southern Growth Policies Board Community Forum brought together local community members, education and business leaders, and local high school students to develop strategies around “Mapping the Road to Economic Recovery.” This video features Karen Russell, former Facilitation Center Director, and highlights just one of our many facilitation services.
