Measuring the Impact of a Residential Learning Community on the Mental Health and Well-Being of Art Students in Higher Education
Martin, Deborah Katharine
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Loyola University Chicago
College students are experiencing mental health concerns at an alarming rate. Art students are a particularly vulnerable sub-population, as artists appear to be more susceptible to mental illness than the general population. Many students do not seek assistance through conventional methods designed by colleges and universities to address their mental health; therefore, colleges and universities must look for alternate methods of supporting students. This quantitative study explores the impact a residential college program (RCP) with an emphasis on engaged learning has on art student mental health and well-being.
