"Well-being and Higher Education" Session at AAC&U's 2014 Annual Meeting

Friday, January 24, 2014 - 5:30am to 6:45am

On Friday morning, January 24th, from 10:30-11:45 am, Project Director Don Harward will moderate a discussion among Brandon Busteed (executive director, Gallup Education), Amanda Hyberger (QEP Director and associate professor, Chattanooga State Community College), Nigel Boyle (associate dean for Global and Local Programs and director, Institute for Global/Local Action & Study (IGLAS), Pitzer College), and Kimberly M. Ferguson, dean of students, Spelman College) regarding well-being and higher education.

As a project, BTtoP remains committed to strengthening the discussion, and then the curricular, pedagogical, and institutional structures, that will intentionally heighten fluency in reclaiming the core purpose and mission of colleges and universities to develop and sustain a campus culture that supports the whole student learner while deepening and provoking higher learning that is necessarily connected to student flourishing and student civic engagement and development. This moderated discussion will involve brief provocative comments by discussants and audience interaction regarding matters of student well-being and higher education.

Both BTtoP events will take place in the Annual Meeting's Grand Hyatt Hotel in Metro Center, Washington, DC. For more information, please visit: http://www.aacu.org/meetings/annualmeeting/AM14/.
