In recognition of the pressures we’re all facing during these extraordinary times—here at Duke and beyond—we will observe a Wellness Day on Monday, April 12th. The purpose of Wellness Day is to prioritize wellbeing and reflection for our community [during a semester that will have few other opportunities to do so]. To help us accomplish this goal, we encourage faculty colleagues to suspend coursework and to plan coursework for the semester in a way that promotes wellness participation for your students and yourselves.
We are working with campus experts to develop Wellness Day activities consistent with our ongoing focus on community health and safety. More information about these activities will be available at https://studentaffairs.duke.edu/duwell/wellness-day-2021. We will be updating this site throughout the spring semester.
