Why This Matters

Higher education institutions must adapt their pedagogical approaches to facilitate a student’s development, growth, and pursuit of higher education. This is especially true for students who have experienced high levels of trauma prior to entry into postsecondary education. Educators must become aware of the pervasiveness of trauma in student populations and create improved strategies and considerations for educating these students.

This is your opportunity to take away a research-based framework with tested results and implement it immediately. Don’t miss your chance to create a better and safer learning environment where all students can succeed academically.
