Student Well-Being Newsletter header

Welcome to the Student Well-Being Newsletter, a new initiative from the Division of Student Affairs to introduce you to the many campus programs, services, and events aimed at enhancing your well-being.

We've also launched a new Student Well-Being website, which collects on-campus, off-campus, and online programs, services, and resources available to support you across eight dimensions of well-being:

  • emotional well-being
  • environmental well-being
  • financial well-being
  • intellectual well-being
  • occupational well-being
  • physical well-being
  • social well-being
  • spiritual well-being

Each newsletter will focus on a specific dimension, with this first issue highlighting social well-being. As we reflect on the past 18 months of social distancing and the often-felt isolation from others, it is critically important to find ways to get connected with your campus community.

Watch: The Power of Vulnerability

In Brené Brown's humorous TED Talk, The power of vulnerability, she shares her personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity.

“So where I started was with connection. Because, by the time you’re a social worker for 10 years, what you realize is that connection is why we’re here. It’s what gives purpose and meaning to our lives.”
