  1. Positivity Special Interest Group (SIG) Meeting »

    May 31, 2016 - 12:00pm

    Are you interested in getting involved in the SSW?

    Do you enjoy talking about the culture, climate, and narratives of the spaces you find yourself in?

    Do you appreciate strengths-based projects, initiatives, and environments?

    Do you wish to create intentional learning spaces?

    Are you interested in strengthening community within the SSW?

    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
