Wellness in the Academy: A Virtual International Symposium was held online on March 25, 2022. The event allowed the chapter authors of Leadership Wellness and Mental Health Concerns in Higher Education to come together in advance of the book's publication to share their research, provide feedback to one another, and establish a culture of co-authorship not normally afforded chapter authors in contemporary academic publishing. The event was made possible due to the generous funding of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) via Acadia University. The archived slides from the event provide additional context to only some of the chapters found in the completed text.
Leadership Wellness and Mental Health Concerns in Higher Education offers diverse perspectives about whether and how campus leaders around the world are sustaining and advancing health and wellness in unprecedented times and amplifies diverse voices in the exploration of how to advance individual and collective wellbeing in higher education. Covering a wide range of topics such as stress management and burnout, this reference work is ideal for academicians, scholars, researchers, administrators, practitioners, instructors, and students.
