2018 NASPA Annual Conference

Engaging Parents & Families in Supporting the Holistic Well-being of Students

PC 36

When families entrust an institution with their student, they are commonly concerned about their general well-being and success. Campus safety, sexual and relationship violence, alcohol, and other drugs all contribute to the well-being of the student. Often institutions struggle with how to tackle these topics with families to better educate without increasing anxiety. Presenters will explore ways that institutions can communicate with and engage families to increase student safety and well-being.
