Supporting Faculty and Staff Mental Health

Covid-19 and social unrest have placed a strain on the mental well-being of people everywhere. While there has been considerable concern for students, college leaders are also focusing on the well-being of faculty and staff on their campuses. How can college leaders support them and provide access to the tools and resources necessary for them to care for their own mental health?

Join The Chronicle for a virtual forum that examines the policies and plans that college leaders and senior administrators can put in place to ease the mental strain of this unprecedented semester.

  • How do they prevent potential burnout or the isolation of working and teaching remotely?
  • How do they best serve staff and faculty of color who are affected by the dual crises of Covid-19 and systematic racism?
  • How do they ensure that staff are treating each other with compassion and care when everyone feels on edge?

Find out as campus leaders, faculty, and mental-health experts bring their varying perspectives to the table for a frank and enlightening discussion.

Panelists include:

  • Sian Beilock, President, Barnard College
  • Shawnté Elbert, Associate Dean of Health & Wellness, Central Washington University
  • Anthony Ocampo, Faculty Coach, National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity

With Support from Sanvello
