Bringing Theory to Practice (BTtoP) is honored to be featured in the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities’ Mental Well-Being and Illness Issue of their publication, Conversations On Jesuit Higher Education. The article, titled "Well-being in the Curriculum” addresses BTtoP's over-a-decade long relationship with Georgetown and particularly the Engelhard Project, named after BTtoP co-founder Sally Engelhard Pingree.
“In 2005, a group of Georgetown faculty, teaching and learning center staff, and counseling and student services professionals began to experiment with these kinds of conversations in the classroom, with the aim of destigmatizing mental health and other stressors, engaging students more deeply in their learning, and nurturing feelings of belonging and meaningful connections. Initially supported by the Bringing Theory to Practice Project, this effort is known today as the Engelhard Project for Connecting Life and Learning. The project uses a “curriculum infusion” approach, in which faculty integrate topics of mental health and well-being into their courses.”
