How to provide support for incoming students this fall: Editorial


In a recent editorial, Alcino Donadel outlines several ways that postsecondary institutions can provide support to first-year students this fall. Donadel writes that this incoming cohort may still be struggling to recover from the pandemic, especially from a socioemotional standpoint. The author advises postsecondary institutions to leverage their data-collection resources to identify at-risk students and “buff up” their mental health resources to promote academic success. Donadel argues that students should be encouraged to engage with others in a face-to-face format. He also encourages postsecondary institutions to ramp up their communication efforts about the resources available through student affairs.
