Current student needs are many, and the stakes are high in helping to meet those needs through effective supports. Student Voice surveys--conducted by Inside Higher Ed and College Pulse with support from Kaplan--capture not just the experiences of U.S. college undergraduates but also what they think their institutions could do to be more supportive.
Inside Higher Ed will host a free webcast featuring Co-founder and Editor Doug Lederman, as he sits down with Student Voice Editor Melissa Ezarik, to take a closer look at the survey findings and explore the ways in which colleges and universities can strengthen approaches and programming related to students.
The speakers will discuss areas in which institutions can improve on giving students more opportunities to:
• Open up about current and past challenges
• Make stronger connections with professors
• Request assistance in a financial crisis
• Express when they're struggling with their mental health
• Raise concerns about safety on campus
• Interact with non-academic offices across campus
• Secure and succeed in internships
With insight into the student perspective, along with questions campus officials are asking of their own students, higher ed leaders can effectively determine where to allocate institutional resources and make changes to improve existing efforts.
