The Institute for Trauma, Adversity, and Resilience in Higher Education
Understanding how trauma impacts the adult learner leads to forming pedagogy and support services that form a critical lens through which the community college endeavors to support access and success in the post-secondary realm.
Promote understanding among the stakeholders in higher education and in the larger community of the profound impact trauma has on student success.
- Progressively grow and sustain a culture of trauma-informed knowledge and best practices across the institution.
- Research funding, design, and protocols for ethical and responsible Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s) style questionnaire for the post-secondary community college in order to create an empirical portrait querying the link between trauma and academic resilience.
- Develop a digital community resourcing and networking information regarding trauma and learning in higher education by means of literature, research, kiosk of events, lectures, publications, conferences, and continuing education.
