Students have many physical and mental stresses that impact their performance in the academic context. Resources exist to help students, but some faculty members are often unaware how to find these resources and how to help students who may need assistance. Join us for dinner as we explore practical suggestions with regard to a range of challenges such as proper responses for disruptive students in class to knowing where and how to refer/help students find resources they may need.
