Wednesday Lunch Hour - Minding the Gap: How UR Supports Students Who Are In or Heading Toward Distress

Wednesday, January 21, 2015
Noon - 12:50 pm
Genrich-Rusling Room, LeChase 215

Students transitioning from high school to college face many potential obstacles and challenges. While support resources are in place to assist students once they arrive, a gap may exist in our assumption that students know what they need and when they need it.  The University of Rochester has a nationally recognized program called the CARE Network, used to identify and support students who are in or headed toward distress. This lunch talk will focus on difficulties students face when transitioning into college and will highlight the CARE Network as a best practice for working with students of concern. 

Presented by Erin M. Halligan, Warner Ph.D. candidate in counseling and counseling supervision, and Associate Director for Student Support Services, Office of the Dean of Students, Center for Student Conflict Management, University of Rochester

Light lunch provided starting at 11:45am.  Program starts promptly at noon.
