Provost and Senior Vice Chancellor Ann E. Cudd has announced that the 2022-23 academic year will be the Year of Emotional Well-Being.

The pandemic certainly has underscored the importance of fully supporting the emotional welfare of students, faculty and staff as everyone navigates the new terrain. This is a time of burgeoning research and collective reflection on our emotional needs and the qualities that make for a good life. Undoubtedly, our Year Of topic will also yield learnings that better people's lives well beyond the boundaries of the University,” Cudd wrote in her statement.

Jay Darr, associate dean of students for wellness, and Jamie Zelazny, assistant professor of nursing and psychiatry, will lead the efforts, along with a committee of faculty, staff and students to be convened.

This is the ninth iteration of the University’s Year Of … initiatives, which have focused on themes such as sustainability, creativity and engagement.
