Our Students Are Dying: Touring the University Abyss
A public lecture by FLOURISH Scholar-Artist-Activist in Residence Dr. Mimi Khúc
Our students are dying. This is a reality many of us, including students themselves, have not been able
to face. We have not been able to look directly at the mental health crisis happening beneath the
veneer of our beautiful universities — a crisis the pandemic has only exacerbated. Dr. Mimi Khúc invite us to confront this crisis together, sharing what she has learned from students during her mental health
tour across the U.S over the past six years.
