Impostor Syndrome & Its Negative Impacts: Strategies To Help Students Engage, Achieve & Persist

First coined in 1978 by psychologists Pauline Clance & Suzanne Imes, Impostor Syndrome causes individuals to believe that they aren’t good enough, smart enough, or deserving enough. Estimated to affect 70% of the population, Impostor Syndrome is particularly significant for students of color, women, and first-generation college students. This webinar specifically addresses Impostor Syndrome in Black, first generation, and female students who may already experience a variety of factors that affect student success, persistence, and completion. Students experiencing Impostor Syndrome can be impacted academically, socially, and emotionally and may also experience related mental health concerns. Practical strategies that students can use to overcome Impostor Syndrome will be shared and tips for counseling professionals, faculty, and mentors will be offered to identify and support students who may be experiencing Impostor Syndrome.

The webinar will take place at 1 pm Mountain Time.
