College Students’ Sense of Belonging: A Key to Educational Success for All Students

Author: Terrell L. Strayhorn

This book offers readers practical guidelines for belonging, underpinned by theory and research on students’ social identities such as race, gender, and sexual orientation, and the conditions they encounter on campus.



Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope

Author: James Redford

As the new documentary Resilience reveals, toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time, and early death. Resilience chronicles the dawn of a movement that is determined to fight back. 

Thank you for taking the time to join our LSAC community today. Before we begin, we would like to pause to intentionally express our gratitude for the land we are on today and to all the Indigenous Peoples past, present and future that have and continue to be stewards of these lands. We recognize that moving forward we are mutually responsible for the caretaking and preservation of this land for future generations.

We commit to co-creating an accountable space. In our LSAC community, we are committed to creating an accountable space where we welcome individual growth, learning, and unlearning. In this space, we recognize and gently remind one another that we are all tender humans with our own stories and experiences, both positive and negative. We aim to lead with kindness, openness, and patience as we identify and break down barriers to create a safer space for us all.
