Educating and Supporting the Whole Student
If any instructor, staff member or college administrator previously believed that academic preparedness and hard work were the only relevant factors in student success, the COVID-19 pandemic surely upended that thinking.

Instructors who might primarily have known their students for the 2-3 hours their academic selves spent in the physical classroom each week were suddenly thrust into students’ homes, seeing up close and personal their struggles not only as learners but as people. Professors became front-line workers in a way, responsible for directing students to virtual support services to help them navigate an unprecedented time.

Join Inside Higher Ed Editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman, as they discuss the news articles and essays in the collection, "Educating and Supporting the Whole Student," which explores the multiple ways that institutions, instructors and staff members changed their policies, practices and approaches to meet students’ noncognitive needs and help them develop as fully as possible.

This webcast will go in-depth into the following topics and more:
• How students’ precollege experiences shape their path into and through higher education
• The development of courseware designed to close equity gaps
• How to help students develop “mental immunity” against stressors to help them self-regulate, learn and thrive
