Well Being in Higher Education

NACUBO is proud to join together with more than 20 higher education associations to present Well-Being in Higher Education: Raising Literacy and Advancing the Conversation, a series of free, virtual events from February 26–March 1, 2024. These associations are collaborating to raise the literacy for well-being among higher education professionals and to advance conversation among colleagues on and across campuses.

Come together with fellow higher education professionals to collectively engage with well-being content, brainstorm ideas, deepen your cross-campus relationships, and further your holistic understanding of well-being and its connection to student success. Participate in dozens of cross-association webinar opportunities to learn more about well-being and real-world strategies your members can bring to their campuses.

NACUBO is hosting the following webinars as part of the program.
