Students need special support as they begin participating in campus life: Opinion

September 16, 2021
The “Covid Generation” needs special looking out for as they begin to participate in life on campus for the first time, writes George Bass. Bass, who works as a security guard at a UK university, offers tips for academics who may act as an “early warning system” for the staff caring for students during the night. Bass says that academics should not jump to conclusions, but encourages them to report missing students if they suspect foul play and to be considerate in addressing suspected issues relating to alcohol, boundaries, social difficulties, and other troubles. Finally, Bass encourages academics to be good examples of COVID-19 safety. Times Higher Ed (Editorial)
