Theme IV: Life; Topic VII

1:30 pm–2:30 pm

Steven Cain,
Topic 7: Students often struggle because of resource insecurity, substance abuse, or mental health challenges – or because their coursework must compete with important outside priorities, such as employment, medical treatment, or caregiving.

Guest presenters:

o Kelli King, assistant vice chancellor for student affairs, will discuss challenges that students often face related to mental health, substance abuse, and resource insecurity.

o Connie Boehm, director of big red resilience, will discuss the various dimensions of well-being and the outside factors that most often impact student well-being and educational performance.

· CTT presenters: Grace Troupe & Eric French will discuss outreach planning, how to approach sensitive consultations with students, and how to build flexibility into course policies and requirements.
