Student Mental Health Crisis Hits Enrollment

Description:

The numbers are staggering. College enrollment has fallen by 1.3M students since the pandemic. The enrollment plunge is primarily due to people who decided college wasn't worth it. Right? Wrong. A new Gallup and Lumina Foundation study shows high demand for higher ed. 85% of those who left school are interested in returning, but stress has increased dramatically over the past 2 years for college students – especially for people of color. We must pay attention and help students stay in school.
