Research shows that despite being more connected via technology, we are finding ourselves disconnected from others with fewer opportunities to interact face to face. The Staff Success Center and Be Well UC hope to help you develop personally and professionally as you learn, share and connect with colleagues over relevant and thought provoking content from articles, TED talks and books. Topics and themes may change – but the conversation will always be engaging, dynamic and foster community.

The Be Well UC and Staff Success Center teams are happy to help answer your questions. Please send them directly to wellness@uc.edu or hrlearning@uc.edu.
