Safety and self-care are essential to students’ academic success and personal effectiveness. As such, many higher education institutions of all sizes dedicate significant resources to programs that support students in maintaining social, emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual wellness. Institutions face various risks when addressing student wellness, including a myriad of applicable laws and regulations, increased prevalence of mental health needs and alcohol and drug issues, complex academic and social environments and under-addressed wellness needs of various groups of students.

How can an institution gain assurance that it is effectively addressing these risks and that its student wellness initiatives are achieving their objectives? This presentation will address how Internal Audit can conduct reviews of student wellness programs to identify potential areas of risk and evaluate whether the institution’s student wellness infrastructure is operating effectively.
After attending this webinar, participants will be able to:Understand the student wellness landscape, key departments and process owners involved in administering student wellness and student wellness trends in higher education
Identify key risk areas potentially impacting students’ emotional, physical, social and academic wellness
Consider methods for reviewing the effectiveness of student wellness programs and initiatives
