Working well in challenging times
The COVID-19 syndemic added more stress, fear, uncertainty, and labor to already taxed faculty, staff, and administrators. Questions abound: How will I get any work done in this environment? How do I balance competing professional, personal, and community demands? How can I manage all that is in front of me when I'm feeling emotionally depleted?
This workshop takes up these questions by providing a framework for healthy coping and decision making in these challenging times. Using this framework, participants are guided in the development of a personalized plan they can immediately implement for better wellness, productivity, and balance.CONTACT US
Addressing stress in higher education

This interactive workshop addresses these issues by helping participants:
- Understand the causes and consequences of stress.
- Assess personal stress levels and coping styles.
- Examine empirically sound ways to manage stress.
- Develop a stress-reduction plan that can be implemented immediately.

5 Secrets to thriving on the tenure track
Surviving the semester is the norm among tenure-track faculty stretched thin balancing the competing demands of teaching, scholarship, and service, alongside personal priorities. When every semester is a repeat of the same, morale, productivity, and health suffer.
This workshop helps tenure-track faculty envision and enact a different, healthier possibility through:
- The sharing of five practices shown to bring achievement, vitality, and joy to faculty life; and
- The exploration of ways to sustain these practices.
Workshop can be designed specifically for assistant, associate, or full faculty members.CONTACT US
