What Higher Education Staff
As a member of university or college administration, you have opportunities to implement trauma-informed training and policies that help your faculty, staff and student body to succeed while also encouraging and building community involvement, activities and social action.
As a faculty member, you work with a broad group of people, ranging from traditional and non-traditional students to other faculty and non-academic staff. Many of these individuals may be parents or carers. Depending on your discipline, child abuse and neglect and related social dynamics may also be a focus of your research.
College and university staff, including personnel in admissions, finance, housing and student services, work with a wide array of individuals, both students and colleagues alike. If you’re a member of the non-academic staff, you have opportunities to support students, your colleagues and the community.
As a student, your role in preventing child abuse and neglect is unique because you can continue to learn—and advocate for learning opportunities—about your how future profession can affect families in your community. You also have an opportunity to help families and individuals that you know right now, in school, socially or at work.
