Panel discussion: Strategies for supporting the social and emotional wellbeing of students of colour and First Nations students
23 July 2020

The National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education (NCSEHE) will host a panel discussion with Professor James Smith (Menzies School of Health Research), Dr Bep Uink (Kulbardi Aboriginal Centre, Murdoch University) and Professor Daphne C. Watkins (University of Michigan).

COVID-19 has created a range of challenges for students and staff at universities throughout the world. These challenges have highlighted the need to support the social and emotional wellbeing of students, particularly those from minority and marginalised backgrounds.

At the same time, we have seen national and global advocacy efforts aligned with the Black Lives Matter movement, to reduce structural and systemic racism experienced by people of colour throughout society.

The panel will unpack some of these issues and the respective strategies that can be put in place to promote and strengthen the mental health, and broader social and emotional wellbeing, of students of colour and First Nations students.
