Finding Belonging During Covid-19: Reflective Photography Project 2020
In Student Affairs, we embrace our role in the shared responsibility of creating a community where students’ can find a true sense of belonging. We know that students’ sense of belonging is integral to both students’ well-being and their success at Lehigh. We also recognize that the pandemic has challenged our community in many ways, including navigating new ways of finding and maintaining connections.
In this project, the research team sought to better understand how the pandemic affected the sense of belonging in our campus community. Students reflected on their experience and submitted photographs that represented the ways in which they found and maintained belonging during this challenging time. We thank the students for their insight, vulnerability, and willingness to share their experiences.
