Updated: February 24, 2024

Anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues challenge college students on campus and abroad. While many students struggle with managing their mental health, they do not have to do it alone.

IFSA and Lehigh University have partnered to launch a collaborative project to investigate the best way forward; identifying needs, evaluating resources, and setting a course for action for study abroad professionals on campus and abroad. To help all study abroad professionals benefit from this information, a white paper will be prepared outlining the findings and develop a practical handbook of best practices.

Spearheading the project will be:

  • Katie Radande, Lehigh University, Director of Study Abroad
  • Jenn Fullick, Ph.D., IFSA Director for Health, Safety, and Security
  • Wayne James, Ph.D., IFSA Associate Vice President, Partner Engagement

First workshop held at Lehigh University in January 2024
The project will kick off with a series of workshops that gather study abroad professionals for collaborative sessions. The first workshop was held at Lehigh University on Jan. 17, 2024.

The next workshop will be held at Macalester College.
