After nearly three semesters of the pandemic painting new, evolving pictures of college life and coursework, students have definite ideas about student success. Many reference hurdles to their success, including job loss, the loss of loved ones to COVID-19, food and housing insecurity, and mental health struggles. Others focus on what supports can help.
Their insight, captured as part of a "Student Voice" survey of 2,000 students, may help administrators and faculty members better understand what students need and want as COVID-19 and its effects linger into the fall semester and beyond.
