The Student Caring Project endorses higher education based on an intentional and ongoing investigation of who students are and how we may help them to make the most of their educations. In this context, it seeks to establish clear expectations for professors and students regarding the goals of higher education, and practical tools for faculty, students, and students’ families that will increase student success. – Mission Statement – 2013
The Student Caring Project advocates a new way of thinking about college. In the current climate of high costs, course cutbacks, and increased pressures on students’ time, students often feel more like numbers going through diploma mills than like people being educated for full and productive lives.
Through podcasts, a blog, a newsletter, and our book, Project leaders Dr. Daniel de Roulet and Prof. David C. Pecoraro offer discussions, tips, and supporting materials. Topics range from establishing welcoming environments, classroom strategies, identifying students’ strengths and challenges, and creating five-year student plans for college and what comes next.
