Campus Climate Survey is Important

In her latest video, Chancellor Katherine Frank asks students to complete the Campus Climate Survey.   Data from the survey will be used to develop short- and long-term goals for campuswide initiatives to enhance the campus climate.  A link to the survey will be sent to students directly and those who complete it will be entered into a drawing for one of 130 Amazon gift cards.

How to Practice Mindfulness 

Giving yourself space to think, to feel, and to breathe 

  1. Take a seat - find a quiet calm space, and assume a comfortable seated position in which you can sit comfortably, either on the floor or a chair 

  1. Set a time limit - just starting out maybe try 5 or 10 minutes and slowly increase from there to 30 minutes or even more. 

  1. Notice your body - How do you feel? What things are happening, emotionally or physically? Is anything new showing up? 

  1. Have a set purpose - What are your goals for today? What are your intentions? Make sure to incorporate those into your practice and carry them throughout your day. 

  1. Notice your breath - feel the rhythm of your breath as it goes in and out of your body. 

  1. Notice if your mind wanders - let it happen but then after a few seconds bring it back to focus on your breath 

  1. Be kind to yourself - you won’t be perfect at it right away, allow yourself time to practice and improve
