Well-Being and Equity
June 12, 2019
This webinar was part of a Bringing Theory to Practice (BTtoP) initiative that links two growing concerns of higher education: student well-being and educational equity. What does it mean to put support for student flourishing at the center of our commitment to equity? What does it mean to place equity, diversity, and inclusion in our commitment to fostering student well-being?
This webinar explored both questions, and focused on historically underserved students, including students of color, first-gen students, low-income students, and adult working students. Speakers discussed frameworks for understanding the connection between well-being and equity and adaptable campus practices that can advance flourishing for students of all backgrounds.
