Understanding the Student Wellness Risk Landscape

View the recording

Wellness across all student populations is a key initiative for many universities and can present legal and reputational risk to institutions, including myriad applicable laws and regulations, increased prevalence of mental health needs and alcohol and drug issues, complex academic and social environments and under-addressed wellness needs of various groups of students. As such, higher education institutions of all sizes should make student wellness a key priority by offering formal programs that support students in maintaining social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and spiritual wellness.

The topic of student wellness is receiving increased attention from students, parents, board members, institutional leadership and other stakeholders. Board members are becoming increasingly engaged in this topic, particularly related to student wellness risks and understanding whether the student wellness infrastructure is operating effectively to help ensure that investments are producing results for students. During this webinar, you will have the opportunity to hear from leaders from two separate institutions who are experienced in working with students and governing boards.

Key takeaways:

  • Understanding the student wellness landscape and the various institutional areas involved in student wellness administration
  • Key risk areas potentially impacting students’ emotional, physical, social, and academic wellness
  • Questions to ask institutional leadership to gain a better understanding of the effectiveness of student wellness programs and initiatives
