Recognize indicators of imposter phenomenon

Imposter phenomenon on campus can be found among students, staff, faculty, and even leaders. Individuals who experience imposter phenomenon can feel doubt about their competencies, accomplishments, or promotions, think that they don’t deserve to hold their position or job, and are anxious that others may discover this, too (Chapman & Kennette, 2021). Reducing the impact of imposter phenomenon through practices implemented on campus can go a long way in motivating students and colleagues, calming anxieties, fostering a sense of belonging, and increasing success.
