Our Belonging Framework

We must play our part in creating social connections, mental health and safety, and individual agency that creates a stronger sense of belonging for ourselves and each other.

We conducted a campus-wide study on students' perceptions of belonging. The process included listening to students' stories and experiences. From that process, we developed a framework for belonging, a basic conceptual structure built on the research findings and data points. You can use this information to help cultivate a stronger sense of belonging for everyone.
