Mindmaxing Podcast: Episode 26 with Kevin Ross
How can higher ed institutions teach students the value of persistence?
In the latest installment of our MindMaxing podcast series, “Adolescence to Adulthood,” Lynn University President Dr. Kevin Ross addresses the importance of making colleges and universities safe spaces for students to try, fail, and try again.
Dr. Ross discusses how Lynn’s implementation of a block schedule—which enables students to practice skills like writing and public speaking repeatedly over a period of time—has helped create just this kind of safe space. He notes that restoring a strong campus community post-COVID is also a key part of this effort.
“When our campus environments were taken away from us, the value of campus community was far more evident than I think it ever had been,” Dr. Ross says.
