Congratulations to Professor Christian Westhof for his selection as a Champion for Mental Health, by the Mines Betsy’s Friends Peer Educators (a group of students working with Student Wellness Promotion to advance and promote student mental health).

Professor Westhof received praise from several students in response to the question “How do they support student wellbeing and promote positive mental health at Mines?” including:

“Professor Westhof cares deeply about his students’ wellbeing and he does check-ins every class to ensure that we are all doing well and provides advice to ensure success in our class. He also ensures that he can help every student that he can, and I’m grateful that he agreed to meet or talk with me outside of his hours in order to help with the class. Student success and wellbeing are clearly his top priorities as a professor at Mines.”
