Learning from Our Higher Education Liaisons: Best Practices in Supporting Homeless Students (ID 258)

Homeless students face many barriers to access higher education, and continue to face challenges once they are there. As student affairs professionals, we strive to create an inclusive and supportive environment for all students. Presenters will share best practices in outreach, identification, services, and advocacy for students experiencing homelessness. Through a crowdsourced policymaking activity, attendees will have an opportunity to identify solutions and share their ideas to better support college students experiencing homelessness while navigating higher education.
