Whole Person Education Workshop Series

sponsored by the office of graduate student life

What does it mean to be a "whole person"? As a graduate student, you are focused on advancing your education, but your true education involves so much more than expanding the knowledge of your discipline. You are a whole person with unique social, emotional, spiritual, intellectual needs and experiences. This series of workshops, sponsored by The Office of Graduate Student Life, is aimed at graduate students in all disciplines to help them better understand how they are still growing, changing, and developing as whole persons.

Lunch will be provided at all sessions.

Workshops that are part of the Whole Person Education Series fall under one of the sixdimensions of wellness:

  • Intellectual
  • Emotional
  • Social/Cultural
  • Physical
  • Occupational
  • Spiritual

All workshops will take place from 12:00 - 1:30pm.
