Fail Forward: Nurturing a Resilient Mindset

Resilience-emailheader.png
The greatest learning happens when you push yourself to the edge of what you are capable of doing. On that edge, you will experience setbacks, struggles, and failures – all of which provide an opportunity for growth. Come learn how to take risks, face challenges in and out of the classroom, and ultimately – fail forward.

In collaboration with Stanford University’s Resilience Project, Undergraduate Academic Affairs is hosting two days of sessions focused on nurturing growth mindsets and resilient behaviors. Join us May 6 and 7 – just in time before your push towards finals!
