With growth in our online graduate program offerings, the workshop aims to help online instructors to consider how they can most effectively support their online advisees and students and connect them to relevant resources both on and off campus. The workshop will also help clarify which services are available to online students through the Barnes Center.

Graduate Dean Peter Vanable will provide brief remarks and facilitate the workshop, which will co-led by Carrie Lynn Brown, director of the counseling at the Barnes Center at The Arch and Tyrone Reese, associate director of student outreach and retention. They will discuss recognizing and supporting students in distress in the online environment. Faculty will learn some of the ways that mental health issues are likely to manifest in graduate students; if, when and how to make a referral; and the support available through the Barnes Center and Student Outreach and Retention Offices versus supports that requires an outside referral.

Note that the event is open only to faculty. Please RSVP to indicate if you plan to attend the workshop. Upon registration, you will receive the Zoom link.
