The Circle: Managing Academic Stress

  • To
  • Online
Event details are repeated in an overlapping circle design

The Circle is a monthly restorative space from the Bias Incident Support Services unit of the Office of Diversity & Inclusion, designed to center those impacted by identity-based trauma. All UMD members are welcome into The Circle, acknowledging that we are holding space for one another as we share with vulnerability and humility. Restorative circles derive from indigenous ancestral wisdom as a means for individual and community healing.

This month, we will focus on the impact of academic stress, especially with final exams and papers in the coming weeks. We will hold space to name and navigate the means for addressing this stress while also opening up opportunities for rest and care.

*To ensure the privacy of attendees, this sacred space will never be recorded
