Florida State University’s Karen Oehme to Serve as Chair of the Academic Resilience Consortium

Karen Oehme was selected to chair the Academic Resilience Consortium. The consortium is an association of over 600 faculty, staff, and higher education students dedicated to understanding and promoting student resilience. Its members include representatives from more than 360 schools in 45 U.S. states and 17 countries, supporting one another in the effort to improve programming and pedagogy and remove systemic barriers to student success.

Oehme is director of the Institute for Family Violence Studies at Florida State University and a research associate in the university’s College of Social Work. At Florida State, Oehme directs the “Student Resilience Project,” an evidence-informed online toolkit that encourages resilience by helping students learn to manage stress in healthy ways and increase their sense of belonging.

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with and share ideas with so many other colleges and universities,” Oehme said. “We are all constantly learning together how to improve our ability to increase the academic resilience of our students and our institutions. I look forward to working with my extraordinary colleagues to identify and address individual and systemic barriers to resilience.”

Oehme has been at Florida State since 2007. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Florida Atlantic University and a juris doctorate from Florida State University.
