SL Staff Development
Greetings Student Life Colleagues!
The Student Life Staff Development Committee is excited to announce that our professional development theme for the year is Wellbeing in Practice.
Our students benefit when they observe us as God’s image bearers living out ideals that lead to our wellbeing. As we develop as student life professionals, it is vital that we tend to our holistic potential—spiritual, emotional, intellectual, and physical—cultivating practices that form us into healthier versions of ourselves for the glory of God and for the betterment of our community.
We hope that you will join us next year as we explore ideas around our theme and pursue Wellbeing in Practice together toward this good and beautiful goal!
