Apply the knowledge you have learned and practiced at home, in the workplace, and in your community.


The Mindfulness Taskforce has created and curated toolkits to help you apply your knowledge of being a mindful person in different contexts.

Normal Reactions to Abnormal Events

To help support employees and/or colleagues in times of distress, Encompass, your Employee Assistance Program (EAP), has compiled a packet entitled Normal Reactions to Abnormal Events.

Restorative Justice Circles and Proactive Circles

Human Resources and Inclusion and Equity have partnered to have several individuals throughout campus trained by the Dispute Resolution Center in Restorative Justice. Consult with these individuals to talk about how to implement restorative justice circles in your meetings or to help resolve conflict. Human Resources has begun to use proactive circles as a part of their monthly meetings; to learn more on how to do something similar, contact Natalie Trent.
