- In terms of helpful links to faculty, here is an article that may be helpful for faculty with high school-aged students as they prepare for the college admissions process. There is also quite a bit of literature that speaks to the trends related to increased anxiety levels students are currently presenting upon their arrival to college that may be helpful. A recent article featured in the NY Times speaks to this issue. There was also an article in Inside Higher Ed that talks about the increased number of students who present mental health challenges on college campuses. Finally, with regard to how faculty can best support students, our approach at Xavier will largely mirror what is described in the EAB whitepaper that can be found here.
