“Netflix and Chat”: When Pop Culture Meets Binge-Worthy Conversation (ID 123)

Colleges continue to focus on providing positive outlets for civil discourse, and East Carolina University has committed to meet students where they are and with what they're watching. Created as a collaboration between student activities board films and the dean of students office, East Carolina University's "Netflix & Chat" series bridges the social nature of "binge-watching" Netflix and features shows that address topics like mental health, hazing, and race, while sharing resources related to those issues. The presenters will discuss the creation of "Netflix & Chat"; provide examples of shows that have resonated with students; and examine the outcomes of the first year of programming.
