The Power of Stories of Belonging in College

A Struggle for Higher-Ed: Sharing Student Voices

Speakers

We will present the #WeBelongInCollege campaign - an interactive social media campaign that encourages high school and college students to listen to student stories and then share their own story about a time when they questioned whether they belonged, either when they were applying to or were in college so that they can help others. Student's posts explain how they managed to persist and realize that they are not alone, and even though all students struggle - they still belong in college.
