Updated: 2 days ago

"We are looking forward to our new partnership with TalkCampus to support our students globally 24/7."



Algoma University based in Ontario, Canada, is the latest institution to show their commitment to the wellbeing of their global student community, by partnering with peer-to-peer support platform TalkCampus.


Algoma students are now part of a safe, supportive, community that combines real-time 24/7 safeguarding and escalation, trained peer supporters and professional staff. Bilingual support ensures they can open up in their own language and helps international students and those studying abroad, which was the feature of TalkCampus that was most appealing to the Algoma team.


"At Algoma U, there is always someone to talk to. We are looking forward to our new partnership with TalkCampus to support our students globally 24/7." - Karen Hudson Director, Student Success and Well-Being at Algoma University.


A combination of peer support, machine learning and innovative design mean that TalkCampus offers students a community they can turn to to receive support with their academic anxieties, isolation and life's ups and downs. Social connection is a huge protection factor for people struggling to cope, and the platform allows students to foster instant connection online, with like-minded people, in a non-judgmental environment.


“We are incredibly excited to be launching with Algoma University, especially at a time where we know that students are facing high levels of stress, anxiety and uncertainty due to Covid-19. This has created unique challenges for international students who have been especially hard hit. By providing social connection through peer support, we can make sure that when those challenging feelings come up students aren’t left to work it out on their own.” - Jennifer Russell, Clinical Director, TalkCampus


TalkCampus is a 24/7 global peer support network for students. Supporting over 500,000 students worldwide with real time moderation and escalation. If you would like to explore how TalkCampus can support your students we’d love to hear from you. Book a Demo - https://www.talkcampus.io
