Statement on Student Wellness

Your syllabus can send a positive signal of your support for students' learning and well-being by including recommendations and encouragement for students to take care of themselves and seek help when they need it. This section can also provide students with important information for getting help, including direct links and contact information for support services. And, if you feel so inclined, this section is also a place to directly invite students to reach out to you when they have questions or need help.

Note: the samples provided are intended for you to use as you prefer: directly, as a starting point for your own statement, or as a source of ideas/inspiration.
