Dr. Kara Finch, Dean of Public Services, Stanly CC
Trauma is widespread. It is an important topic for professionals in higher education because a student’s history of trauma influences their learning capacity. The negative effects of trauma can interfere with a student’s persistence and completion. Trauma also results in fear, mistrust, and inflexibility. Faculty and staff who are aware of trauma and their effects can better recognize them among their students and create a safer environment.
