VP Nancy Young Quoted in Two Baltimore Sun Articles

Serves as expert for national and international media

Vice President for Student Affairs Nancy Young, Ph.D. was quoted in the October 1, 2021 Baltimore Sun story, “Universities find mandates effective in convincing Maryland students to get COVID vaccines, feel safer on campus.” Young shared the factors that helped contribute to high compliance rates, including UMBC’s 99% vaccination rate among students.

The new Center for Well-Being was featured in “Health, wellness and community: Colleges address health eating, mental health, and a sense of belonging” in the Baltimore Sun’s October 2021 Education Supplement. In the article, Young shared that the building is a response to the increasing numbers of students experiencing anxiety, depression, and other issues, as well UMBC’s commitment to addressing the physical, mental, and spiritual health of undergraduate and graduate students. The Center for Well-Being is home to Retriever Integrated Health; Initiatives for Identity, Inclusion, and Belonging’s Gathering Space for Spiritual Well-Being; and Student Conduct and Community Standards.

In addition, Young has served as an expert consultant for the Times Higher Education’s 2021 international Student Success Forum and was part of the 2020 panel discussion on student affairs. She also provided input for the Chronicle of Higher Education’s Oct. 2021 Intelligence Report on student success.
