Emory University: Psychosocial Well-Being Initiative Grant

Psychosocial Well-Being Initiative Grant

This initiative offered a Happiness Boot Camp (HBC) to second-year students living in Harris Hall.  With programs such as HBC, it is no surprise that one of the top pillars that emerged during Emory Campus Life’s 2014-2015 strategic plan was flourishing.

The implementation not only included the Happiness Boot Camp, but several stakeholders wanted to create new technology that would make the living-learning community sustainable.  This includes:

  • Developing a Flourish Coaching program based on the VIA (Virtues in Action) self-assessment
  • Bringing a Well-being course to the living-learning community
  • Creating fellowship position who supervises flourishing advisors (FA’s).  These FA’s would develop programs and experiential programs to apply new knowledge about well-being
  • Common Readings
  • Mentor Program
