This week on The Quadcast, MCI reporter Mollie Ames speaks with Sam Dolbee, her former advisor at Harvard College and a current assistant professor of history at Vanderbilt University. As professors around the country find themselves on the frontlines of the student mental health crisis, Sam discusses his experiences providing care to students who are struggling. Conscious of the wide range of stressors his students are facing, Sam is willing to adapt his teaching to meet the needs of his students, as individuals or a group. “I think working with all students involves meeting them where they are and treating them like the complex, interesting human beings that they are,” he said.
