Resilience and Compassion @ Odegaard Pop-Up Events

Project Size: Small, <$1,000
Estimated Amount to be requested from the CSF: $700

Letter of Intent:

The “Resilience and Compassion @ Odegaard Pop-Up Events” will engage students in forming community around compassion and resilience, diversity, equity and inclusion, and holistic student wellness. The proposed event series will have a different focus each quarter that ties directly to the theme of resilience, compassion and sustainability:

- Fall Quarter 2019: Resilience and Compassion @ Odegaard: Student Digital Wellness

- Winter Quarter 2020: Resilience and Compassion @ Odegaard: Student Wellness and Equity

- Spring Quarter 2020: Resilience and Compassion @ Odegaard: Student Wellness Resources for Personal, Local & Global Sustainability, in collaboration with UW Student Life partners.

Each pop-up event will include interactive activities (making, crafting, reflection), community-building (conversation starters, encouragement cards, interactive whiteboards), food, and companion resources like book displays and referrals to campus student services. This proposed event series will be done in collaboration with students, with opportunities for student leadership built in to each event
