Sale price$399.00


Data-Driven Solutions & Approaches to Student Development

Many of today’s students can’t manage the pressures facing them – nor have they learned the skills to soothe themselves and carry on in the face of temporary setback and disappointment.

Our expert presenters share how their innovative resilience education program, Resilience-Informed Skills Education (RISE), was developed and implemented on their campus and the positive impact it has had on developing students. They will provide data-driven, practical, real-world solutions and approaches to teaching resilience skills to your Generation Z students. 

Explore strategic ways you can incorporate resilience development into your students’ living and learning environments, including how to regulate their emotions, develop learned optimism and cope with the challenges they are facing now and will face in their futures. You’ll be able to adapt these practical approaches to student development to your specific campus’ needs.

  • Identify the next steps to create or modify your current resilience programs to better meet the needs of your campus community.
