Wellness Workshops and Seminars
- Open Safe Zone Workshop This training — open to faculty, staff, and students — aims to create a supportive campus climate by encouraging conversation around gender identity and sexual orientation, homophobia, heterosexism, and various oppressions. By educating members of the campus community about current LGBTQ-related issues, members of the campus community can be more prepared to provide support and resources on LGBTQ and Ally concerns.Any person or group can request a Safe Zone training: email@example.com
Thursday April 13th from 6 - 8 PM in Lathrop Hall, 207
- We See You Collaborative Studio this is a series that was designed to present students with a therapeutic, safe space to exercise their creativity using language and images. We’ve established the space as a response to student need for safe creativity. During the Spring semester, partnered with the Shaw Wellness Center, we held two successful meetings of the studio in which students created within a community designed for them. We offer students a chance to create (poetry, story, visual collages, paintings, and various other forms) without being graded or judged in a punitive sense while still being guided by artists. We have a particular emphasis on being there for those who feel they aren’t heard or are under represented here on campus and in the world. We also aim to empower students by teaching them therapeutic writing techniques that they might do on their own. This semester with the additional sessions, we hope to help students grow as creators as they learn about their own wellness and ways to manage their well-being. 1 hour weekly sessions meeting for 10 consecutive Tuesdays at 7 p.m. First Session is at the Shaw Wellness Center on Feb 7.
