Commit to a ‘wellness streak’ to help manage work stressors
Burnout and compassion fatigue are workplace mental and emotional health hazards that can reduce employee productivity and increase absenteeism, so workplace solutions are needed.
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.
