In this presentation, Dr. Sofia Pertuz (Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer, JED) will interview Dr. David Jones (Chief Diversity Officer & Director of Talent Management, William Paterson University) and Andre Banerjee (Landscape Designer, Active Minds Emerging Scholars Fellowship) to discuss the importance of how considering “space” – both physically and mentally – and other campus efforts can support the mental health of all students on campus.
