Description

Introverts unaware of their personality type struggle to fit in a culture that values popularity, abundant social interactions and aggressive in-class participation. New student orientation programs, group assignments and career fairs attract the outgoing student. Inadvertently, these activities leave the introverted student feeling inadequate and frustrated with their college experience. Student Affairs educators can play a pivotal role in guiding introverted students to a successful transition into college life by creating awareness, encouraging students to build on their strengths and empowering students to balance demands on their energy. Join this discussion to identify ways to support introverts on your campus.
