Campus Prevention Network National Insights Report

In an era of declining enrollment, alternative paths for career preparation, and increasing skepticism about the overall value of a degree, institutions of higher education face the urgent task of demonstrating how a college education uniquely prepares today’s college students for post-graduation success.

Higher education leaders are hearing from their counterparts in the corporate and non-profit and public sectors that today’s graduates must be skilled in engaging effectively with others in an increasingly diverse work environment.

Students also expect for their college experience to increase their skills in building community and making a positive social impact. And research demonstrates when colleges and universities foster a greater sense of belonging for students, those students perform better academically, stay in school, and are more satisfied with their college experience. Investing in diversity, inclusion, and belonging generates many desired outcomes for institutions of higher education.
