Isolation and Belonging

Academic life can be an isolating experience for many people. For many, the role requires you to live far from home and those you love; for many, the workload demands can impact significantly on your ability to socialise and maintain relationships. We explore:

  • Some of the many sources of isolation and loneliness that are inherent in our system.
  • Why it is so bad for us? The answer to which lies with our sense of belonging and identity.
  • How we can begin to change it – to increase our sense of belonging within the academic and local community through creating a sense of safety, connection and common threads.
