  • Many institutions of higher education are tightening or cutting budgets at the same time that college health professionals face increasing demands for services and programming. This presentation will highlight how professionals can better understand their primary resources, make the case for additional funding and other resources through telling their story with data, and use time-tested advocacy strategies to enhance their advocacy efforts.

  • The pandemic exacerbated challenges within many colleges' health and wellness departments, leading to burnout and rapid turnover. The lack of sustainable budgets puts many institutions in dire need of rethinking how we approach recruitment and retention, and to look for opportunities for a sustainable future. Senior Administrators understand and will explore best practices for recruitment. As equally important they acknowledge the importance of creating a healthy workplace environment that not only supports the employee and what is important to their identity but creating a culture of wellbeing and belonging -- one that encompasses our diverse campus population including students, faculty and staff.

  • Retention and engagement have become hot-button issues at the forefront of the workforce consciousness. Employees feel unappreciated, underpaid, and overworked. This session will highlight two universities’ efforts to address crisis levels of burnout among faculty and staff and provide an avenue to enhance employees' sense of value, appreciation, and belonging. The session will address the specific needs of queer and trans employees.

  • Integrated, comprehensive care addresses the increasing need for college mental health services in the face of a diminishing and burned out workforce. This presentation will define various integrated care terms, and describe the current state of the art. Challenges and strategies to overcome the reluctance and challenges of integration from both counseling and medical points of view will be described. Details of factors that led UC Davis to integrate its medical and mental health teams, the electronic medical record, and quality and risk processes.
