Connect with colleagues over literature through Reflection Point

Finding ways to connect with others at work can be difficult when you’re stuck in a cubicle or limited to small talk before a meeting or in the hallways at work. When faculty and staff of varied ranks, roles and backgrounds meet regularly to discuss narrative literature—facilitated by university professors—they share life experiences, explore diverse perspectives, shed familiar paradigms and develop authentic connections.

The Wellness Program offers faculty and staff a unique approach to wellness through Reflection Point, which consists of the sharing of ideas based on great literature. The Reflection Point program builds community and enhances emotional and intellectual fitness. Reading groups, made up of a diverse cross-section of professors, administrators, researchers, and other staff, meet weekly for 12 weeks to discuss three books carefully chosen due to themes that inspire robust discussions on values, issues, and beliefs.

This program takes place on Zoom and will be held on Tuesdays from May 14 to July 30 from noon to 1 p.m. The sessions are not recorded. Those seeking a Wellness Program Incentive in the Community Well-being category for Reflection Point would need to attend at least 10 of 12 sessions to meet the incentive requirements.
