Profiles in Wellness at Werklund
At Werklund, we're interested in how academic and support staff, as well as our students, support their wellness. We believe that sharing the benefits of our self-care activities with each other can help build our collective well-being.
We invite you to participate by describing your wellness activity and then uploading a photograph of yourself taking part in the activity - whether it's meditative or athletic, enjoying a still moment, or something more action-oriented. We're interested in learning how each of us takes care of our wellness.
This pillar of our academic plan invites us to commit ourselves to raising awareness and promoting wellbeing in an effort to help others realize their potential. Using more holistic approaches, professors are encouraged to engage their students, research, and teaching and learning in ways that incorporate health and wellness.
