Student well-being: Beyond counseling

 

At this time of year, many of our students appear to be stressed, tired, and poorly rested.  Even if they are performing well academically and looking forward to a prestigious summer internship or research experience, they may not be doing “well” in the broader sense of the term.  As this recent article from Inside Higher Education points out that well-being “is not simply the absence of mental or physical illness” but includes elements such as a feeling of satisfaction, life direction, and strong relationships.  The article describes ways faculty members can help students become engaged in their learning by incorporating real world issues and encouraging students to reflect on the contributions they hope to make to the world.
