Tap Into Your Community to Put Student Well-Being Front and Center
Meaning, purpose, belonging, finances, loneliness, anxiety, social injustice, relationships, balance, a perception that the world is unraveling… today’s students have so much on their minds. And it deeply impacts their sense of well-being.
Yet, campus counseling centers can’t “staff their way out of this challenge,” as the need is much too great for one office to handle. A community approach is needed, filled with programs and systems that support mental and emotional well-being across the board.
There are a wide variety of excellent strategies playing out on campuses across the U.S. We’ve collected 50 for you to consider incorporating into your own campus culture of well-being. Utilize these strategies so you can:
- Help retain students by addressing their very real well-being concerns
- Support the imperative work that your counseling center is doing by supplementing their efforts
- Encourage campus collaboration to create the most effective well-being strategies
- Engage faculty and staff members in being part of the solution, making this a campus-wide support initiative
- Demonstrate that your institution is paying attention to what really matters in students’ lives, validating their feelings and sense of self
- Graduate students who have a positive sense of well-being
