Being Well is at the heart of doing well. We can only put our best foot forward in the classroom when we create the conditions for success. We know that we have to take care of our own wellness and that of others – to support students and staff alike in striving to be our best selves every day. Supportive, inclusive and effective learning environments require connectedness and supportive relationships among all members of the learning community in order to ensure physical and emotional safety of self and spirit. Academic excellence occurs in an environment where love, caring and belonging are foundational elements.
