Promoting and prioritizing student wellbeing helps students both inside and outside the classroom. Since we know that optimal academic performance is intertwined with sense of belonging and well-being, what are those simple, small strategies faculty can do that help in your classroom? Are you running low on ideas, or maybe you’re unsure where to begin? This space will be reserved to talk about creating health promoting academic spaces and include an open exchange of ideas to promote student wellness in your academic spaces.
Participants will leave with strategies they can infuse into their work with students to promote wellbeing.
This event will be facilitated by Brian Vanderheyden and Paul Hengesteg.
Join the first session of an interactive webinar series as we discuss student health and wellbeing at Iowa State University (ISU).
Explore the highlights from ISU’s National College Health Assessment data, the current data from our campus needs assessment process, and spring 2022 focus group findings with Brian Vanderheyden (Director, Student Wellness), Erin Baldwin (Associate Vice President, Health Services), Kristen Clark (University Public Health Coordinator, Student Wellness), and Laura Triplett (Student Wellness).
Participants will have the opportunity to reflect on the data and ask questions. Future sessions in the series will focus on ISU’s efforts to become a health-promoting university and how we can build the capacity to enhance the wellbeing of students.
