11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Given the challenges facing us with the state budget and the uncertainties associated with it, I feel it is important to hold a campus-wide session on resilience. This session will be conducted by Gary Johnson, who is affiliated with the National Resilience Resource Center and is a local social worker. Gary also serves on the Stout IRB.
I’ve spoken with him at length about the value of this training. He has conducted similar trainings with PK-12 educators in 2011 when Act 10 occurred, and more recently with public health workers. The goal of the session is to learn strategies for leadership, coping, and strength in the face of external uncertainties. The session will promote caring relationships and trust.
Many people on campus are nervous, and some people feel undervalued and disrespected. Morale is low, and we have this opportunity to respond with a positive message. I hope you will be able to attend this session offered at no expense to the university.
