Faculty and staff are invited to a self-care retreat in the beautiful setting of the CC Cabin. During this day, participants will experience new ways of engaging in everyday life that replenish their energy and nurture their overall well-being. Through activities, discussions, and personal time for relaxing and self-reflection, participants will discover practical ways to reduce the effects of unhealthy stress and harness the energy of healthy stress to foster greater day-to-day enjoyment and fulfillment. Participants will leave with a personalized tool kit equipped with self-care strategies to ensure that the benefits of the retreat will last beyond just the day!

UMB will be updating IntelliLink this weekend. Users will not be able to access the website between 8pm Friday (6-1-18) through Sunday (6-3-18). On Monday (6-4-18) users will be redirected to a new website that will have a new look, but the same functions as the old website. Remember to bookmark the new website because the old website will disappear in 60 days.

Just a reminder that our onsite chair massage program is on a hiatus for the summer. We are trying to get the ability to make appointments ‘turned off’ but in the meantime please note that even if you make an appointment, the massage therapist will not be here.
