Conference: The Whole Student: Intersectionality and Well-Being – 24th May 2017

30th November 2016

Deadline for abstracts 30 November 2016. The purpose of this conference is to bring together educators of all types (faculty, student affairs professionals, staff mentors and advising professionals, teaching assistants, administrators, etc.) to focus on the importance of well-being in higher education. Through the lens of intersectionality, conference participants will examine and explore how institutional values and campus cultures acknowledge or contextualize the intersections of student identity and lived experiences, support them, and challenge them. This conference takes seriously the commitment to “whole student” development through the exploration of the very elements that make students whole.
