Book Group: The Impact of a Sense of Belonging in College: Implications for Student Persistence, Retention, and Success (Hosted Online) In-Person

Belonging is more than a buzzword. It is at the heart of what we do as educators and requires us to consider the greater institutional context and environment we create and in which our students learn. We hear the term “sense of belonging” often now, especially when we are concerned with diversity, equity, and inclusion and student outcomes, but what does a “sense of belonging” really mean? In this edited volume by Erin M. Bentrim and Gavin W. Henning, they provide an overview of the theoretical foundations and evolution of the term and provide compelling research on how belonging impacts students’ persistence and success, especially for students from underrepresented groups. We will read the intro and theory chapter together and then participants will select the remaining chapters for the second and third book group meetings.

Facilitator: Linda Hasunuma, Assistant Director, CAT
