The SBSP Wellness Conference is a product of feedback we received from our Summer Bridge Scholar alumni. When they shared about their experience and where they thought improvement was needed they asked us, “Why don’t we learn more about navigating departments on campus? Why don’t we take trips to UHS to figure out what to do when we’re sick? Where do we learn more about budgets? Where do we learn how to navigate our way online and on campus?”
This got us thinking how can we help our scholars learn more about staying informed and “whole” while they are on campus. Thus the Wellness Conference was born. It is a way for us to assist scholars in exploring the various areas of wellness that will impact their success at the University of Michigan through environmental, emotional, financial, intellectual, mental, multicultural, occupational, physical, social and spiritual wellness. As well as provide exposure and direct contacts to campus resources and staff across campus.
