Well-Being and Higher Education: A Strategy for Change and the Realization of Education's Greater Purposes

The newest release from Bringing Theory to Practice, Well-Being and Higher Education explores the multiple connections of well-being to higher education—and why those connections matter for the individual lives of students and those who teach; for the institution; and for whether or not the unique promise of higher education to a democratic society can be advanced . . . and realized.

The volume provides 35 accessible essays including but not limited to the following topics: a conceptual analysis of well-being; its significance for institutional policies, structures, and priorities; its practiced connections to higher education’s unique role in a democracy; campus violence; educational opportunities for non-traditional students; curricula and pedagogical practices in both the sciences and humanities; the connection between well-being and meaningful work; instituting campus well-being through lessons in the medical field; and more.
