WHAT IS RESILIENCE, WELLNESS, AND WELL-BEING AT PRATT?

The Resilience, Wellness, and Well-being (RWW) project at Pratt is dedicated to creating a culture where the entire Pratt community can flourish and thrive through our focus on connection, engagement, support, and well-being. 

WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

The Resilience, Wellness and Well-Being Council celebrates a holistic approach to education and student/alumni success by expanding awareness of the pathways, support and opportunities to build and sustain resilience, wellness, and well-being for all of Pratt’s community members.

From drop-in meditation and student resources to faculty development workshops to support student flourishing across the Pratt campus, the Council advances the work of Pratt’s creative community through mindful inquiry, engaged programming, and contemplative pedagogy, including:

  • Student, Staff, and Faculty Training and Development: Courses and programs such as the Pathways to Flourishing Studio Project (faculty), Meditation Incubator, and Art of Well-being course (students)

  • Tiered Support and Self-Care: From well-being roundtables and the Farm to Campus healthy eating program to Mindful Pratt meetups and other initiatives

  • Health Promotion: Embed health and well-being into all aspects of campus culture including programs, education and operations to support a whole campus approach to healthy lifestyles

  • Resources: articles, videos, guidebooks, and more

The RWW Council and project are a Student Affairs initiative and are overseen by: Council Chair, AVP Rhonda Schaller; RWW Project Coordinator, Jasmine Cuffie; and RWW Council Coordinator, Sam Harvey.

The Council consists of faculty, staff, students, and alumni from across the Institute. We are a fluid group welcoming new perspectives, roles, and ideas into the conversation--and all are welcome.
