The New Landscape of Student Well-Being Office Hour


Higher Education


PreventionSafetyStudent Training

A new generation of students facing a wave of issues from post-pandemic trauma and learning loss to political unrest and global conflicts has college and university leaders considering how the student experience needs to be redesigned to better engage students and make their institutions more welcoming and safer.

During this Office Hour, we’ll examine how campuses are re-framing safety, well-being, and inclusion as investments rather than obligations, and by doing so, improving student success.

Among the issues we’ll discuss, along with input from the live chat:

  • What are the ways prevention programs can improve student academic performance and sense of belonging on campuses?
  • How can a focus on well-being and safety show up in enrollment and retention results?
  • What is the role of social-emotional well-being in helping prepare students to get a good job and be successful in the workplace?
  • Where are there opportunities for colleges to focus more on safety, well-being, and inclusion? What sort of barriers make this approach so hard?
