Schwitzer, Alan M.; Vaughn, John A. – About Campus, 2017
Everybody on campus is responsible for recognizing and responding to students in crisis. Sometimes the difficulty is knowing when to intervene. Being alert to students' mental health and wellness needs is an essential part of work life on today's campuses--even when it means stepping out of one's own narrow professional roles or risking leaving…

Glanzer, Perry L.; Hill, Jonathan P.; Johnson, Byron R. – About Campus, 2017
What is known about college students' search for purpose more than ever before due to the scholarly attention devoted to purpose development over the past two decades.

McCusker, Kristine M.; Witherow, Laurie B. – About Campus, 2012
On a Thursday night in December 2010, a Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) first-year student stepped in front of a train and killed himself. Because it took some time for the news to reach campus and be confirmed, the student was "funeralized," as they say in the South, and buried before his professors or peers could be informed. That left…

Francis, Lynette Cook; Kraus, Amanda – About Campus, 2012
While student veterans share characteristics with other student populations, they also bring to campuses a host of unique gifts and challenges whose impact can be profound, not only on the vets themselves but also on the institution and the individuals who work with them.

Shushok, Frank, Jr.; Scales, T. Laine; Sriram, Rishi; Kidd, Vera – About Campus, 2011

This article discusses the emergence of a "postsecular age" in American higher education: an age in which the academic study and practice of spirituality is alive and well.

Bertram, Margaret – About Campus, 2010
In this article, the author contends that to understand the concern over student mental health, one must first consider what students are reporting about themselves.

Kezar, Adrianna; Yang, Hannah – About Campus, 2010
In this article, the authors argue that campus communities must play a more active role in developing financial literacy than they currently do--and not just by providing counseling in moments of emergency.
