The coronavirus pandemic has uprooted back-to-school planning for 2020-21. Ongoing campus closures, physical distancing requirements, and the need for academic continuity forced institutions to pivot their learning plans and how they support their students and faculty. COVID-19 has also exacerbated the mental health needs of students, elevating this issue as a top priority for campus leaders. A recent survey revealed that students are 38% more concerned about their mental well-being and 51% report being more stressed since the pandemic’s onset.
