Dr. Terrell Strayhorn joins us in this 2 part series to discuss how he stumbled into his public speaking and consulting career. He also goes into:
- His research findings and thoughts on the importance and various dimensions of student belonging on campus
- How his book came to him and why this second edition (Summer 2018) is needed
- The powerful, yet potentially overlooked correlation between student belonging and connection with levels of belonging and the level of alumni engagement (and GIVING!)
- The difficult pattern he is witnessing with faculty connecting with the framework of belonging and tools to help them tap into it while also improving classroom performance.
Part 2 will be important to catch because we are getting things ready for student graduation. Many face various forms of anxiety and stress as the result of feeling unprepared for this next stage of life. How can higher education professionals get ready for the wave of change in the world of work that is ALREADY HERE? And what does belonging have to say about that?
