Description: Loneliness is a significant contributing factor to student attrition and poor mental health that has been drastically exacerbated in light of the pandemic. This presentation will highlight the 18+ month research process, development, launch, and impact of a scalable, digital intervention proactively addressing the issue of loneliness on campus. Results of a randomized controlled trial and subsequent launch at 30+ institutions, including Colorado State University and CU Denver, will be presented alongside key insights and learnings to assist campuses in decreasing loneliness amidst ongoing social anxiety and uncertainties.

Learning Objectives:
  • Analyze the current state of loneliness on campuses across the nation and its associated mental health impacts, both prior to and in light of COVID-19.
  • Analyze the opportunity to proactively support student belongingness and social connections to promote student mental health, well-being and success.
  • Develop awareness and understanding of approaches being applied to buffer student loneliness and means to garner cross departmental support to reduce it.
