School/Work/Life Balance for Students

The Work/Life Balance workshop will explore the multiple challenges that students and student parents face in trying to balance the multiple roles they play during their every-day lives. These roles often include parenting, being a student, other family responsibilities, keeping up physical/emotional/spiritual/mental health, financial obligations, and having a social life. This workshop will include a discussion around an alternative view of the work/life balance struggle, and participants will have an opportunity to discuss their challenges. Finally, the workshop will explore tips on improving your work/life balance, and provide helpful resources for all areas of life.

After completing this workshop, students will have learned:

  • An alternative way of looking at work/life balance
  • Tips from colleagues on how to balance the different aspects of your life
  • Helpful resources
