Becoming a student-centric institution starts with listening to the student voice and providing a space where that listening turns into dialogue. Ready Education has curated a handful of student voices with messages around isolation, mental health, and homelessness that student affairs leaders can learn from. This presentation starts a conversation about the student’s perspectives on best practices for keeping students engaged, happy, and healthy.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Identify how students can drive community engagement and reduce feelings of isolation
  • Understand why mental health, connection, and sense of belonging are intertwined for our student communities in the age of social distancing and how you can help
  • Hear the anxiety around remote learning for students who intentionally chose to be on campus
  • Participate in a conversation around student online communities and how to build them best to facilitate engagement.
