Student Workshop with Dr. Al Fuertes: Self-Care and Well-Being for College Student Leaders

Thursday, November 16, 2017 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Student Union I, 3B

College students, including student leaders, often face moderate to high stress levels as a result of pressure from heavy course loads, peer pressure, family and school/campus obligations, having a part-time if not full-time job, financial debt, or doing volunteer work and community service. Although a certain level of stress may have its own benefits, too much stress can lessen a student’s ability to be productive and pay attention to their personal, social, and academic undertakings.

On this regard, how and in what ways do our students and student leaders take care of themselves: mental emotional, physical health and social wellbeing?

This workshop will provide participants a space where students can explore and discuss concrete ways to self and collective care towards holistic health and wellbeing.
