Beth McMurtrie, Senior Writer, The Chronicle on Hi

The April 29th edition of the Chronicle on Higher Education, featured “The Disconnected Student: Professors are reporting record numbers of students checked out, stressed out, and unsure of their future,” a complex theme echoed by both higher education staff and by K-12 teachers.  The mental health of our students, not to mention staff, is certainly a factor; but the problem and possible ways to address the “disconnection” is more complicated than that.


The article, by Chronicle staff writer Beth McMurtrie, attributes much of this problem to the disconnections caused by the pandemic, especially the isolation that many students felt, but that such concern pre-dated covid; and surely gun violence, especially in schools, has to be factored in for students and indeed all of us.


On October 7th, join us at Goodwin University – for CHERE’s third hybrid conference (in-person and on Zoom) to look carefully at this perplexing issue, led by Beth McMurtrie, author of that seminal Chronicle article, who will provide an overview of her extensive research, followed by several campus experts to respond and talk about how to address the issues that Beth has raised, and per usual, a panel of students to gain their on-the-ground perspective.  Another CHERE BOGO (buy one get one free) event.
