Evidence shows that students’ ability to learn and succeed is directly linked to their ability to secure food, housing, mental healthcare, childcare, and other basic needs. Three in five college students experience one or more forms of basic needs insecurity. Promoting basic needs security is central to learning and is critical for college student success and degree completion. Plummeting enrollment numbers and changing dynamics in higher education represent an opportunity for higher education staff, faculty and administrators to use a data-informed, human-centered, equity-minded approach to adapt systems and practices to meet student basic needs. Dr. Anne E. Lundquist, Director and Assistant Professor at The Hope Center in the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University will share the latest survey results from The Hope Center's student basic needs survey, highlight relevant policies and associated supports, and showcase examples of innovative and effective practices for institutions to create an ecosystem to ensure students' basic needs are met.
Join Dr. Anne E. Lundquist from The Hope Center at Temple University in this eLumenation session.
