About the Episode

The what's what...

Like many in higher education, Becca wears multiple hats but my favorite part of our episode is all about the multidimensional health and wellness support her office provides students. Becca talks about the data and individuals that came together to make student experiences better through robust mental health and wellness resources and services. One focus was on the financial wellness of students and addressing everything from living and transportation to childcare and food security.

  • We’ve got to address the whole student. From financial to spiritual, student health and wellness impacts every part of the student experience.
  • A new generation is forcing staff and faculty to question everything they’re doing, even down to the terms they use
  • Multigenerational impact helps older students be more open about mental health and younger students are learning critical thinking skills

The Application with Corynn Myers

I'm doing a podcast, but not like the typical fluffy marketing podcast (I really don't like fluff). This podcast has a 3-part recipe. Ingredient #1: The Doers. These are the social directors, marketing managers, and communications specialist on the ground doing the work, and I'm going to convince them to tell me all of their secrets. Ingredient #2: Consumer Data. We'll look at consumer behavior and marketing best practice outside of higher ed and apply them back to higher ed. Ingredient #3: Actionable Takeaways. We're going to mix together higher ed secrets, marketing best practices, and consumer data to create action items you can do and use today. This podcast is for doers in higher ed marketing communications and is a a part of The Enrollify Podcast Network.
