Centering Equity and Fostering Mental Health for Student Success Workshops

About the Workshop Series

Student mental health has remained a top concern among college and university presidents during the pandemic, according to ACE’s Pulse Point surveys. While many students have felt the effects of the pandemic, research shows that students of color have been disproportionately impacted. Concurrently, events of 2020 fueled our nation’s reckoning with systemic racism.

Institutional support for the mental health of students of color is essential to ensuring equity and student success. Attend one or both workshops to gain strategies, frameworks, and tools to support the mental health and emotional well-being of students of color now and into the future.
