  • How to utilize information and data to inform your prevention and intervention strategies — you don’t have to reinvent the wheel to take your case management program to the next level.

  • How to draw upon the evolving fields and existing practices, such as positive psychology, resiliency and population health care to round out the work you do — retain your students by providing them with the support they need to stay healthy and safe.
