Lunch and Learn –Summer 2018

Lunch and Learn – Summer 2018 (Food Insecurity and Hunger)

The ability to successfully navigate higher education can be difficult for students identified by researchers as under-resourced, under-served or underrepresented. Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs
helps to situate this discussion whereas it is reasonable to imagine that a student cannot focus on learning if he or she is hungry. In a study released in April 2018 entitled Still Hungry and Homeless in College, Dr. Sara Goldrick-Rab and her colleagues revealed that 42% of community college students are food and 46% reported being housing insecure. During the Summer 2018 Lunch and Learn roundtable discussions at PDCCC, these trends were explored within the context of the implications for higher education’s completion agenda. An examination of the aforementioned study positioned participants to openly share their ideas, field experiences, best practices and recommendations for future actions.
