How can colleges promote students’ academic success and decrease their psychological distress? To answer this question, the National Research Consortium of Counseling Centers in Higher Education surveyed students at 18 U.S. colleges and universities to identify malleable psychological factors that allow students to thrive academically, personally, and socially during college. Measures of participants’ academic success are being followed longitudinally for six years. Team members will present their initial findings, including the first academic outcome data.

  • Nurses and Nurse Practitioners

Learning Objectives
