Recharging and Rejuvenating: SUNY Brockport Supports Faculty and Staff Well-being Through a Book Club
by Jie Zhang, SUNY University Faculty Senate Equity, Inclusion and Diversity Committee
Throughout the academic year of 2023-2024, the members will read three books on faculty/educator wellbeing and connect with each other. They will exchange, explore, reflect, and implement strategies for sustaining physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being to bring the best selves to work. They will also work together to create a learning community, strengthen the sense of belonging, and contribute to building a better Brockport.
The three books are:
“Educator Wellness” (2021) by Kanold & Boogren (Amazon link to "Educator Wellness");
“Wellbeing in Higher Education: Cultivating a Healthy Lifestyle Among Faculty and Students” (2018) edited by Henning, Krägeloh, Dryer, Moir, Billington, & Hill (Routledge link to "Wellbeing-in-Higher-Education"); and
“Wellbeing at Work” (2021) by Clifton & Harter (Amazon.com link to "Wellbeing-at-Work").
