What is Resilience, Wellness, and Well-being at Pratt?

Resilience, Wellness, and Well-being (RWW) 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. Together, we work with faculty, staff, students, and alumni to gain the creative and life skills that build meaning and engagement during our time at Pratt and beyond. 

We conduct surveys on well-being, so we can offer programs and appointments that are data informed, and we host conversations and a Council across the Institute to collaborate on ideas, initiatives, and actions.

Who We Are And What We Do

Resilience, Wellness and Well-Being 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, we strive to advance 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 COMPOSE, Meditation Incubator, and Art of Well-being courses
