Student Wellness: An Interdisciplinary Course Approach
From Jon Gunnell
Student mental health is an increasing concern for college campuses to grapple with, especially post-COVID. Join this session to learn how two professors spearheaded the creation of a course called “Balancing Wellness.” This course combines kinesiology with creative writing, art, music and theater and the students studied the effect each on wellness. The course also features guest lecturers from across campus to enrich our lectures. Join us as we explain how we created the course, share student voices, and highlight course outcomes.
