Description

Part of what drives individuals to choose a career in academia is the opportunity to mold and shape the lives of young adults. When you are an early career faculty member who’s new to an institution, this can be a daunting task. Where do you turn if you have a student who is facing mental health challenges? What are the procedures for supporting a student with a disability? How can you help transfer students to make a seamless transition to their new school? During this session, you will learn about the protocols and procedures that Appalachian State faculty use to support their students.

Panelists: Lindsay Masland, Psychology Susan Colby, Center for Academic Excellence Martha Marking, Early Intervention Team Maranda Maxey, Office of Disability Resources Alan Rasmussen, Student Affairs Jane Rex, Office of Transfer Services
