Day Zero 2022

What held us back?

Starting the semester with energy and enthusiasm is the motivation we all love to see in our students and faculty. Day Zero was created by the Office of Academic Affairs and the Center for Teaching and Learning to offer an additional boost to setting the stage for a successful semester. The last two years have been a test for humanity to learn to overcome difficult situations, reinvent ourselves and adapt to new realities. Levels of stress, uncertainty, and mental health issues, to name a few, have been issues that we grapple with, and focusing on our well-being and re-imagining a more caring and compassionate community is more important than ever. Join us for a day to talk and share ideas on how we can tackle this goal together. The day will offer a student panel discussion.
