Wellness Wednesdays – Spring 2023

Over the last two years, there has been an ever-growing population of struggling students. Anxiety and depression rates have been on the rise with a near constant feeling of uncertainty. These shifts have created long days and the need to craft new approaches during a seemingly ever-changing personal and professional landscape. Faculty and staff have been left to navigate this shifting environment even while experiencing the same stressors as students. It seems inevitable that many of us are now feeling exhausted and burnt-out. How can we protect and support each other while also remaining present for our students?

This spring the Center for Teaching and Learning will be offering Wellness Wednesday sessions. Activities for these sessions will include a book club reading and discussion of “Deadly Professors: A Faculty Development Mystery” and work in a wellness journal among other things. All materials required for these sessions will be provided by the Center.

Sessions will be held both in person and virtually via Teams.

  • January 25 (scheduled meeting)
