Graduate Wellness Symposium
The first annual Graduate Wellness Symposium is a day dedicated to information and discussion about mental health and wellness specifically targeted towards graduate students. This is an interdisciplinary symposium with talks by professors, post-docs, and PhD students in Philosophy, Sociology, Psychology, and Kinesiology. There will be a balance of information-based talks, workshops, stress-relieving activities, and free food. The symposium is an opportunity and a safe space to discuss graduate issues; no research faculty will be present.
This year is a leap year, so take this "extra" day for your wellbeing!
