Webinar Video: Rethinking Higher Education’s Purpose
A recording of LearningWell magazine’s November 14th webinar Rethinking Higher Education’s Purpose is now available for online viewing.
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 invites 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 explores how wellbeing factors into some of the most important questions in higher education today. The webinar is moderated by Marjorie Malpiede, editor-in-chief of LearningWell magazine. 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.
