Imagine a world where prospective students select a campus based not just on degree programs but on the holistic experience it provides; where college rankings incorporate safety, well-being, and inclusion; and where prevention drives academic performance, persistence, and career readiness.

Discuss the needs and expectations of today’s learners and the critical role of safety, well-being, and inclusion efforts on strategic student success outcomes.
Apply research-based best practices and innovative new models to elevate the prioritization, visibility, and impact of well-being strategy.
