Changing the Narrative from Surviving to Thriving: A Longitudinal Study of Undergraduate Student Mental Health in Engineering



Presented by: Karin Jensen

University of Michigan


  • Higher education is facing a mental health crisis that continues to intensify, underscoring the urgent need to increase our understanding of student mental health to develop proactive supports. In this seminar, I will investigate the narrative of required stress and hardship during engineering programs that perpetuates a stress culture and explore how perceptions around norms impact student help-seeking and peer interactions. Finally, I will share how we connect this research to curricular interventions to support student wellness and change the narrative in engineering to create a culture of wellness.
