Addressing your students’ needs is critical to ensuring a successful higher education experience. That’s why the University of Hawai’i partnered with findhelp to launch the UH Student Basic Needs website: a database of over 2000 resources to address student’s needs. In addition, the university established an infrastructure to address student needs at the campus level, harnessing survey and search data to strategically develop interventions in response to students’ unique needs. At this webinar on June 10th 2022, University of Hawai’i and findhelp will share methods for identifying the basic needs of students, understanding the resources available to meet their needs, and developing infrastructure to address basic needs inhibiting student success.
