Transitions to college are often accompanied by race-related stress, which can impact a student’s ability to succeed. In particular, students of color can face experiences such as imposter phenomenon, microaggression, an invalidating campus climate, and mental health stigma. Being aware and becoming equipped to handle these concerns can help not only survive, but thrive. This workshop will provide students of color with information on the types of issues they might face, how to cope to maintain their physical and emotional well-being, answer questions about monitoring their health, and provide best practices for seeking assistance and available resources.
