Student Reflections: Belonging in Higher Ed

Higher education is proven to correlate with better health, higher earnings, and greater job security; however, research shows that gaps in degree attainment persist for students from under-resourced communities. The goal of this session is to elevate students’ perspectives on how a sense of belonging in college impacts their ability to succeed. During this session, a panel of current students will discuss how colleges can create an environment that is supportive of underrepresented students.
