In Fall 2019, the internal (on-campus) Mental Health Review Committee (MHRC) examined the impact of campus culture and policies related to student mental health and well-being, while an External Review Team reviewed clinical services and campus-based strategies.
Participation in the Review by faculty, staff, and students was critical in understanding what we do well as a university, the challenges we face, and the opportunities for improvement. The MHRC has developed several processes for stakeholders to provide feedback:
Participation occurred in the following ways:
- A campus survey was available (through the end of January, 2020) to address any or all of the following questions related to campus health and well-being:
- What does Cornell do well in support of student mental health? What opportunities do you see to improve mental health on campus
- What is the impact of social identity on student mental health at Cornell?
- What impact does the Cornell culture have on student stress?
- What ideas do you have to reduce the impact of stress on students?
- What questions do you want the Mental Health Review Committee to consider
- What else do you want us to know?
- MHRC listening sessions for student groups and organizations, faculty, and student support staff.
Listening sessions were scheduled throughout the fall semester and were offered in the following forms:
- Focus Groups
- World Cafés
- “Telling Stories” sessions
