Webinar: Rethinking Higher Education’s Purpose
The Mary Christie Institute and LearningWell magazine will host a webinar on Tuesday, November 14 at 1:00pm ET.
As higher education grapples with how to maintain public trust, colleges and universities have an opportunity to reshape their approach to preparing the next generation of leaders, prioritizing wellbeing to ensure that each student leaves campus not only with a diploma, but with the tools to embark on a meaningful life.
This webinar will invite a shift in perspective, exploring new initiatives to design (and redesign) our institutions to better serve the lifelong health and fulfillment of students. A panel discussion will explore how wellbeing factors into some of the most important questions on higher education today. Featuring academic leaders and experts in both higher education and wellbeing, the panel will touch on themes including: teaching to the whole person, the importance of equity and access, and incorporating new ideas into existing mental health programming with the goal of producing young people who thrive in their lives after graduation across all measures of wellbeing.
The webinar will be moderated by Marjorie Malpiede, Editor-in-Chief of LearningWell. Panelists include Randall Bass, PhD, Vice President for Strategic Education Initiatives & Professor of English at Georgetown University, Joslyn Johnson, PhD, Assistant Dean of Student Development & Career Initiatives at the University of Michigan, Daniel Porterfield, PhD, President and CEO of the Aspen Institute, and Eric Wood, PhD, Director of Counseling and Mental Health at Texas Christian University.
