Conversations on Jesuit Higher Education
When I first started teaching at Loyola University Chicago over 26 years ago, the only times I heard the word anxietyhad to do with math or science anxiety. As educators, we felt equipped to fix any math and science anxiety that impeded our students’ learning. But what about general anxiety or depression that goes beyond impeding learning and affects all aspects of the students’ life? How do we help our students with something we are usually not trained to identify, much less “fix”?
