Join the special interest group at the U-M SSW! This open group was formed in response to students, faculty, and staff voicing vibrant ideas for making the SSW a more strengths-based, resilient, compassionate, and connected space. A place where we focus on deficits AND strengths; challenging realities AND hope; ideas AND action.
Our work involves:
- Installing and launching a communal SSW Library (coming soon | expected Spring/Summer 2016!)
- Designing, selecting, and hosting relaxation, meditation, and/or mindfulness classes (coming soon | expected Fall 2016!)
- Drafting a proposal to begin a Positivity Ambassador Program
- Generating and proposing ideas to decision-makers for more creative use of common spaces within the SSW
