Sense of Belonging: Acceptance, Inclusion, & Identity

When talking with students about their college experience and identity development, one common sentiment stands out. A majority of students are looking for a sense of belonging. Some consider developing a sense of belonging is just what we do as people. While others take it further and consider developing a sense of belonging crucial and imperative to our survival. Students come to higher education belonging to various groups. However, many of the people, places, or traditions they connect with for belonging do not come with them. Therefore, one role of campuses across the country is to help provide venues and/or entry points for students to enhance their experience and belonging as a college student. Tune in to this episode for a discussion about sense of belonging.
