Webinar - Well-Being and Equity

June 12, 2019
Online, 2:00-3:00 p.m., ET

 

This webinar is part of a Bringing Theory to Practice (BTtoP) project on the links between student well-being and educational equity. Academic research and campus practice have emphasized the importance of well-being as a condition of student success and a core goal of educating the whole student. In recent years, the importance of student well-being as an equity imperative has become more and more evident, often due to the advocacy and activism of students themselves. What does it mean to place support for student flourishing at the center of the equity agenda? What does it mean to place equity, diversity, and inclusion at the heart of our understanding of student well-being? This webinar will explore both questions, with a focus on students whose experience of marginality often undermines their success and thriving: students of color, first-generation students, low-income students, and adult working students.
