Practicing Self-Care and Building Resilience

Dear Students

The Self Care Committee remains committed to providing support to students, and assisting you with generating solid self-care plans to last throughout their careers. Due to the global pandemic, we have decided to forgo a formal self-care week in the Fall. Instead, we will be providing opportunities for support, education, fun, and resiliency building throughout the semester. Please take care of yourself this semester, and practice self-compassion. Each of you have access to your faculty advisor, one another, and the Student Counseling Center.
