This time of COVID is a reminder to find compassion for ourselves and to bring our lives and our world into greater balance. This week The Center for Counseling and Psychological Health (CCPH) launches new ways for you to connect and get support. Equally important, in sharing your own story you serve others and your community. The courage required to be vulnerable and authentic helps others feel less alone and offers them permission to tell their stories.

Remember, taking the path of compassion helps heal us all. If you need support, contact CCPH: (413) 545-2337

Events this week!

The American Council on Education (ACE) is hosting a webinar: Helping Students Prepare for and Navigate the Transformed Job Market after COVID-19.

DATE: 5/14/2020
TIME: 2:00- 3:00 EST

"COVID-19 is reshaping the U.S. economy in real time impacting millions of Americans. In the coming months, new college graduates will be entering this transformed labor market defined by new workplace, recruiting, and work practices.

- What can higher education leaders do to prepare students for the new landscape?

- How does career readiness look different than it did even a few months ago for students planning to enter the job market in the coming year?

- Will students seeking to advance in their careers be forced to seek different types of opportunities because of economic disruption?

- Do new competencies become central? Even after the COVID-19 crisis, for example, will it continue to be more important than ever to demonstrate an ability to work remotely?

- Do these changes require new approaches to instruction, assessment, and student support?"

Hello everyone! Iโ€™m a student ambassador for GIVE (Growth International Volunteer Excursions), a nonprofit outreach organization that I volunteered in Tanzania with over this past winter break. Recruiters for GIVE are holding information sessions tomorrow (Thursday) in CAMPUS CENTER 174-176 at 10:45, 11:30, 12:15, 1:00, 1:45, 2:30, 3:15, and 4:00. Everyone should really check it out! It was an absolutely amazing experience and Iโ€™m already looking to go on another volunteer trip! They have trips to Nepal, Nicaragua, Tanzania, Thailand and Laos. GIVE partners with communities to promote sustainable development. Also check out their website: https://www.givevolunteers.org/ Let me know if you have any questions!
