Student Mental Health and Well-Being

About

​​​​​​ACE understands that institutional practices around student mental health and well-being play a critical role in student success. Students with poor mental health are at risk of a lower GPA, discontinuous enrollment, or dropping out. Best practices around student mental health and well-being can therefore benefit both institutions and society at large by helping ensure that students thrive. ACE’s research and insights on student mental health and well-being look to provide higher education leaders with the tools that they need for their institution to address the health of students on their campus.
