The UAlberta Jericho Project: Bringing mental wellbeing to the forefront of the student health agenda
Shweta Dhawan, Elizabeth Flaming

The 2013 National College Health Assessment II conducted at the University of Alberta revealed that 86.9% of students felt overwhelmed and 37.3% reported stress as a factor affecting academic performance. These figures triggered the creation of the UAlberta Jericho Project, a pilot intervention program employing a socio-ecological model aimed to create platforms for dialogue around mental wellbeing. The two-part plan of the project includes: 1) Short-term goal of video profiling faculty, administrators and students sharing their experiences on coping with stressors and 2) Long-term goal of creating a Mental Wellbeing Working Group to examine issues and implement wellbeing promoting strategies. 

Sticking the Landing
Linh Lu

I want to share the story of the Landing, the new gender & sexual diversity centre at the University of Alberta. How it started, how it was formed and where it is now. A key part of it's formation is team work and realizing what I can do and what I need help with and being willing to collaborate. I want to identify what my process was and show others the possibility to achieve their goals with teamwork.

Small Changes for Big Results
Cameron Raynor

This year has been hugely successful for Augustana campus newspaper, the Dagligtale. By making constantly making small changes, questioning even seemingly successful areas, and constantly collecting feedback, we've been able to lead a team of 12 students to make a stronger and more effective organization with less and less effort.
