The Mind Matters Champion award seeks to recognize students, faculty, and staff for their contributions toward creating a culture of well-being at Cal State LA. A Mind Matters Champion should exemplify successful integration of inner well-being into the framework of University life as a means of supporting student success. Exceptional and innovative dedication to the inner well-being of others might be demonstrated through innovative elements of classroom pedagogy that seek to reduce stress and anxiety and promote a receptive learning environment; innovative staff support focused on helping others feel welcome and well-informed; or innovative counseling and advising that has a transformative effect on student success, along with other approaches.
Students, faculty, and staff are strongly encouraged to apply and to nominate other members of the campus community whose approach to inner well-being could ultimately foster in others their own practice, whose expertise has educated others on the importance of inner well-being, and whose dedication to inner well-being has contributed to the success of Cal State LA students.
Tell us why the nominee deserves recognition as a Mind Matters Champion. Please provide specific examples of how the nominee has demonstrated commitment and support for the inner well-being of students, faculty, or staff (600 word limit).
*Please email one letter of support from faculty, staff or students to firstname.lastname@example.org
