Resources for Faculty and Employees Working with Students and Families

Vassar is truly a community of caring, with passionate dedicated employees who want to help our students succeed. Students who are supported in their overall well-being are more likely to thrive as students and as members of our Vassar community.

All of our students benefit from having supportive adults in their lives who encourage them on an ongoing basis to engage in wellness practices. This includes empowering students to take care of themselves, connect with others, understand their emotions, and enact their values (Porosoff & Weinstein, 2021). Each of us can play a role in their well-being and we thank you for striving to be an approachable adult in their lives.

As promised, you will find the Health and Well Being Curriculum video sessions and the student encounters. It is important to not just view the videos but to practice with one another on how to hold space for various conversations and for all of us to strive to be “an approachable adult”.
