About GUIDE (Guiding Universities in Demonstrating Empathy)
We are also excited to announce that UNC Charlotte is furthering our commitment to faculty and student success by offering a training program to empower faculty and staff to support student mental health and well-being — without sacrificing your own.
GUIDE (Guiding Universities in Demonstrating Empathy) is an empathic communications training to empower educators to conduct effective student support conversations — and to identify and engage the appropriate college services when needed.
During this one-time, three-hour session, you will:
- Learn how to identify & contextualize student needs.
- Participate in an iterative, supportive feedback process designed to prepare you for your next student interaction.
- Test, explore, and refine empathic communication skills.
- Learn how to integrate GUIDE into your class and work with students.
This professional development opportunity is offered by Prevention Strategies, a UNC Greensboro affiliate, funded by the UNC System and supported on our campus by the Office of the Associate Vice Chancellor for Health & Wellbeing.
GUIDE training is optional, but we hope you will take advantage of the opportunity to support our students — and yourself.
