Looking to explore more about Resiliency in Education? Check out EDUC 200!

In EDUC 200, students learn skills to enhance their wellbeing in college and in their life in general. Particular focus is paid to skills that help students withstand common difficulties in life, like a disagreement with a loved one, tolerating doing work you don’t want to do, and managing negative emotions in a healthy way. Skills will include but will not be limited to mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness skills. Students will also learn about research underlying stress, resilience, and related skill areas.


This 3 credit class will be offered for the upcoming 2018 winter quarter to all majors. Students will meet for lectures on Wednesday late afternoons with a one hour lab section on Fridays for small group activities. The class also provides I&S credits.

EDUC 200 Resilience Skills for College and Beyond allows students to work towards their best life while earning credit!

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a serious and under-diagnosed problem in the medical world. There were 2.8 million TBI-related emergency department visits, hospitalizations and deaths in 2013 alone, and it is estimated that 61% of people with TBIs develop depression. In order to provide support to this community, Synapse at the UW hosts peer support groups, social events, and a buddy program where students are paired one-on-one with someone who has a TBI. We want to foster a sense of togetherness among those with TBI and the general community while raising awareness about TBI.


Join us on Wednesday, Oct. 25th from 7:00-8:00 PM in Dempsey Hall 124 to learn about the positions that we have open right now. Get involved in the TBI community and make a true difference in someone’s journey to recovery from TBI!”



Become a Mentor with Making Connections!

Making Connections is a college readiness program for local high school girls that primarily targets first generation students and students from low-income or disadvantaged backgrounds. We work with students from freshman to senior year by providing tutoring, mentoring, career exploration workshops, and assistance through the college application process. The program has a strong focus on STEM careers, and we encourage students to pursue science, technology, engineering, and math. Women of color are dramatically underrepresented in STEM fields, and we hope to combat this by providing supportive and informational programming and guidance in STEM career exploration.

Our mentoring program matches our high school students with people who have been through high school and the college admissions process to provide support and guidance. We seek mentors who will…

  • dedicate 4-6 hours a month toward building a relationship with their mentee
  •  offer support, advice, and guidance to their mentee while they explore higher education, apply for college, and gain knowledge about the STEM fields,
  •  support and motivate their mentee towards success in achieving their aspirations.
  • attend a mandatory mentor orientation and training
  •  attend mentor-mentee socials with your mentee as well as other Making Connections workshops and activities
  • provide monthly updates to program staff

Here is a link to the mentoring application:
