Excellent @chronicle webinar "The Mental-Health Crisis on Campus" with Dr. Gary Glass, Ryan Houston-Dial, @DoreenSMarshall, Dr. Michael G. Mason & Dr. Kimberly Quinn - moderated by @AlexanderKafka.

I've *NEVER* seen this amount of questions consistently roll in during a webinar. Image This (mental health crisis) has been going on for 10+ years.

We (staff) don’t care any less – and because of that, the burden *feels* even heavier when the narrative is that we can’t handle the demand. - Dr. Gary Glass

Really excited to be a part of this national conversation taking place tomorrow!

Looking forward to sharing some of the work #LaHEC is doing through @LA_Regents in Louisiana & learning from others.

#PreventionWorks! Addiction can happen to anyone -- even the brother of the @Surgeon_General of the United States ... or any college student on one of our campuses.

Day 1 of #LaHEC2019 is underway! Excellent opening remarks from Dr. @KimHunterReed & Dr. Janice Petersen.

Followed by results from our 2019 Core Survey results by Dr. Laura Rowald of the Core Institute. What are your policies for missed or late payments from a G.I. Bill? Are we penalizing students by kicking them out of classes for paperwork mishaps? - @dclosn #LaHEC2019

Excellent info to consider as our institutions & @LouisianaGov prioritize campus resources for #veterans.

"Race matters in higher education." - Lorelle L. Espinosa (VP for Research at ACE) #EquityMatters

Pretty good way to get the morning started! Image Key Finding #1: Our populace is becoming more educated, as well as more racially and ethnically diverse -- driven largely in part by an increase of Hispanic students. #EquityMatters Image
