Resilience and Adaptation in Undergraduate Education During COVID-19 
May 11, 12–12:50 p.m. (PT)
What kind of losses did undergraduate students incur during the pandemic? Findings from a state-of-the-art measurement system used at UC Irvine will be presented to highlight resilience and adaptation in the context of the COVID-19 public health crisis. While students were able to continue making academic progress at close to pre-pandemic levels, what might they have lost in terms of human development? What were the effects of remote instruction? Of the absence of vibrant interactions on campus? What can we learn from the experiences that might help us better serve students from diverse backgrounds in the future?

Presenter: Richard Arum, Professor of Education, UC Irvine

Student Mental Health in the Time of COVID
May 25, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. (PT)
Mental health and well-being have become more salient in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. This webinar will provide the audience with national data on mental health trends among college students as well as patterns across the University of California. In addition to providing context, experts will share ways that UC is addressing the student mental health crisis, including programs, services and strategies to better support students at UC.
