Boston University is an international, comprehensive, private research university, committed to educating students to be reflective, resourceful individuals ready to live, adapt, and lead in an interconnected world. Boston University is committed to generating new knowledge to benefit society. The Leave of Absence Manual will guide students who have had an interruption to their postsecondary education or are considering a leave of absence in making informed decisions about taking a leave, managing and building their collegiate resilience during a leave, and handling the process of re-entry effectively and healthily. The Manual will offer tools and strategies to navigate what can be a daunting process, as well as inspirational student vignettes to support and empower students with the wisdom of peers with shared experiences. The associated Implementation Toolkit will assist colleges and universities across Massachusetts with putting in place best practices and policies related to student leave of absence and provide a framework for future policy changes in college mental health on a broader level. www.cpr.bu.edu
