Overwhelmingly, faculty care about their students’ well-being and want to provide support. However, it can be difficult to know how to support students in a way that also maintains credibility for their course. This presentation will offer ideas on small and large adjustments to consider that addresses student health and well-being. We invite faculty and staff to come share their strategies to incorporate and promote well-being in the classroom.

Antiracist Resources during COVID-19
The Multicultural Resource Center have pulled together two collections of resources to assist in teaching and learning about the impacts of COVID-19 and the George Floyd Movement on all of us, and in particular on our Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities.
An easy way to incorporate health and wellbeing is to let campus partners to the work for you! When you’re not able to be present for the class while attending a conference or personal conflict, it’s the perfect time to schedule a presentation.
