IUP faculty members and teaching assistants attended “Student Thriving,” presented by Mimi Benjamin,
Student Affairs in Higher Education, on Thursday, October 5, from 12:30
to 2:00 p.m. in the HUB Allegheny Room.
While “surviving” the
college experience is important, student “thriving” is a better goal.
What is it that contributes to students having a college experience
that goes beyond survival?
During this session, research-based
conclusions about what leads to thriving for various student
populations were shared, and ideas for encouraging student thriving
were generated in the hopes that faculty can assist students to
thrive at IUP.
