Mini Grants to Support Student Wellness
We have observed students doing exceptionally well despite the pandemic and other stresses, but we can do more
to help those who struggle. Even the smallest things can make a big difference in a student's life. The Faculty
Development Center and Dean of Students recognize the challenges that our community are facing and, in an effort to
support their wellness through these times, we have collaborated to fund faculty in their efforts to support student
wellness in their classroom.
The recipients of these awards have been granted up to $250 dollars for their proposed
idea and will implement their wellness initiative during the Winter 2023 semester. A few of these initiatives include:
Mindful of Burnout: Raising Awareness and Promoting Prevention"
- "Guiding Teachers Candidates to Integrate
Academics and Wellness"
- "A Doggone Good Idea: A Paws-ative Wellness Intervention for the College
We look forward to the implementation of these initiatives and to learning and sharing about the benefits that they
bring to students and the community at large. Given the positive and excited responses that we have received about
this initiative, we intend to continue providing these mini-grants to EMU faculty and lecturers in the coming semesters.
These mini-grants, for which we seek your financial support, work to both support student wellbeing and to educate
our community on the positive impact that these wellness practices can have on our students.
