Many educators were excited about the new academic year as a chance to “return to normal” after the coronavirus pandemic. But in the last month — with the spread of the Delta variant — the pandemic has continued to change the way colleges operate.
The pandemic didn’t create student mental health concerns, but it added to them, as some students were unable to receive good care while at home.
Join Inside Higher Ed Editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman for a lively discussion that will explore:
- The extent of student mental health problems before the pandemic, all of which are expected to continue.
- The challenge posed by the pandemic to meeting student mental health needs — and how colleges adjusted their offerings.
- The plans of colleges for reaching out to students when the pandemic is over.
