Each semester, the Wellness Resource Center sponsors a variety of campus events aimed at increasing awareness and knowledge around wellness topics.
A living-arts project at which victims of violence and their supporters express themselves by making a t-shirt representing their story about violence.
The Vagina Monologues includes performances by female-identified students that relate to the experience of domestic violence, sexual assault, trans* issues, and sexuality. The 2017 performance of The Vagina Monologues brought in nearly 500 attendees over 3 nights, and the money raised from this event was donated to the Wellness Resource Center.
To kick off April’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Temple students and faculty participated in the inaugural “WalkTU” event to raise awareness around sexual violence on Wednesday, March 29. WalkTU replaces the annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event. The new event focuses on inclusion of all members of the Temple community and raising awareness around all forms of sexual violence. Learn more about the event here. We look forward to walking with you in 2018!
Once a semester, the Wellness Resource Center collaborates with departments and student organizations across the university to host Wellness Day. This event provides students a fun way to take a break from stress and learn about self-care strategies and the extensive mental health support services available on campus.
