    STIs on College Campuses - On Campus Podcast

    STIs on College Campuses - On Campus Podcast

    Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) on college campuses pose a significant public health concern, affecting the well-being of students. The unique social dynamics of college life, characterized by increased sexual activity and a transient environment, contribute to the spread of STIs. Despite efforts to promote safe sex practices, many students engage in risky behaviors, such as unprotected intercourse and multiple sexual partners. Limited access to sexual health resources, stigma, and a lack of comprehensive sex education further exacerbate the issue. Colleges must prioritize initiatives that promote awareness, education, and easy access to testing and protection methods to mitigate the spread of STIs and safeguard the overall health of their student populations.

    The 2023-24 flu and COVID-19 season marks another critical juncture in public health. As we grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, this season presents the added challenge of co-circulation with seasonal flu strains. Vigilant vaccination efforts and public health measures remain imperative in curbing the spread of both respiratory illnesses. Health authorities recommend the flu shot to reduce strain on healthcare systems, prevent co-infections, and protect vulnerable populations. The ongoing research and surveillance will guide response strategies, emphasizing the importance of personal responsibility, community cooperation, and adaptability in these interconnected public health threats.

    First Generation Students in Higher Ed - On Campus Podcast

    First Generation Students in Higher Ed - On Campus Podcast

    Sarah E. Whitley serves as vice president of the Center for First-generation Student Success, an initiative of NASPA and The Suder Foundation. Prior to joining NASPA, Sarah earned a Ph.D. in higher education from the University of Virginia School of Education and Human Development before serving as director of First-Year Experience and Family Programs at Longwood University from 2007 – 2013. A proud first-generation college graduate, Sarah is the author of First-generation Student Success: A Landscape Analysis of Programs and Services at Four-year Institutions as well as other scholarship on first-generation and related topics.
    First-generation college students in the United States face unique challenges. They are the first in their families to pursue higher education, often dealing with financial limitations, reliance on financial aid, and part-time jobs. They lack the guidance and support systems that students with college-educated parents have, which can make navigating the application process and campus life daunting. Imposter syndrome is a common psychological obstacle, as they may feel like they don't belong. Cultural and social adjustments can lead to feelings of isolation or a cultural gap. Despite these challenges, first-generation students demonstrate resilience and determination, often with the support of mentorship programs.

    Generative AI in Higher Education - On Campus Podcast

    Generative AI in Higher Education - On Campus Podcast

    Sukrit Venkatagiri is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Swarthmore College. His research interests are in social computing and mis/disinformation studies, where he explores the ethical design of technology. At Swarthmore College, he directs the Collective Resilience Lab to help people resist strategic misinformation and other types of technologically-mediated harm, build sociotechnical systems to repair trust in each other and our institutions, and empower people to advocate for their rights while refusing harmful data and labor practices.

    Generative AI is revolutionizing higher education by personalizing learning materials, automating administrative tasks, and aiding research. It adapts content to individual student needs and offers rapid feedback on assignments. However, there are challenges to address. Privacy concerns arise with the use of AI for student data analysis. Maintaining the quality of AI-generated content and avoiding biases is another concern. Moreover, implementing this technology can be costly and necessitates faculty training. Striking a balance between automation and human interaction is crucial. Despite these challenges, generative AI holds enormous potential to enhance higher education, fostering more efficient, tailored, and data-driven learning experiences.

    Note: Given the topic of this podcast episode, the description was generated using AI technology.
