College Student Health Survey: Supporting Data Driven Programming presentation
UMD has been part of the UMTC/Boynton Health College Student Health Survey project for a number of years. In this session, three UMD staff provided an overview of the 2021 survey results related to student mental health. They also included current UMD strategies for supporting student mental health.
Managing Concerning Student Behavior presentation
Students present a variety of concerning behavior in classrooms and service areas at UMD.  Faculty and staff are positioned to respond in the moment, but to be effective, they must be prepared.  Being prepared requires leadership,  a sense of compassion, and an understanding of your students.  The Managing Concerning Student Behavior presentation explored de-escalation strategies faculty and staff can use in a live-wire environment, options for collaborating with the University in response to problematic behavior, campus climate scenarios,  student mental health resources, and disability resource referrals. The spring 2022 session was presented by four members of UMD's Student Care Team.
