Advice for Faculty on Student Mental Health
After 18-months of virtual classes since the onset of the pandemic, faculty and administrators may be looking for more resources to foster a greater sense of community and alleviate stress on campus.
In Ep. 26 of the Quadcast, “Faculty on the Frontlines: Advice on approaching in-person teaching, finding resources on campus, recognizing signs of student distress, and conveying care and community,” Andrew Shepardson, PhD, Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students at Bentley University and Zoe Ragouzeos, PhD, Executive Director of Counseling and Wellness Services at New York University and MCI President, share advice for faculty to better support college student mental health and wellbeing at this critical time – including caring for their own mental wellbeing.
Additionally, we’ve supplemented the Quadcast with a new Fall 2021 Faculty Guide on Student Mental Health, which provides insightful suggestions informed by experts as well as by college students from various universities.
