Strategies for a Holistic Student Experience
Student mental health is one of the most difficult and pressing issues facing colleges and universities today. Having largely ignored the issue for years, but now in the wake of the pandemic, higher education must develop a holistic approach to engage and retain its students.

This webcast will examine how institutions can better ensure all students have the support and opportunities they need to thrive inside and outside the classroom. Hear from current higher education professionals about their research on this topic and the strategies they are finding that foster a culture of student wellbeing on campus. The webcast will cover the following topics and more:

• What’s driving the need for colleges and universities to deliver more than just teaching?
• What are some mental health-focused strategies, including informal care and efforts at counseling centers, that appear to re-engage students?
• Why does mental illness disproportionately impact marginalized groups? What approaches seem to minimize the impact on these groups?

There are many potential hurdles, but college and university leaders can implement various measures to help students feel better supported. Attend this webcast to learn how.
