Well-being Working Conference

Thursday, September 26, 2013 - 5:00am to 11:30pm
Purpose
As part of a developing initiative that gives special attention to the psychosocial development and well-being of students, BTtoP has identified and is prepared to support with one-year $10,000 matching grants thirty institutions that are (or will become) national leaders in attending to the whole student learner—institutions that are committed to asking and then responding in their policies and practices to such core questions as:
  • How does learning, as a defining element of our campus culture, support the psychosocial development of our students (how does the epistemic connect to the eudemonic)?
  • How and why does an intentional commitment to the psychosocial development of all of our students positively affect their learning and civic engagement?
The purpose of this conference was to convene this national community of leaders for the first time to discuss their work and develop their proposals.
