Different types of learners need different types of learning environments and support to manage the rigors and expectations in the classroom. Using a variety of resources, we are able to cater to more than just one learning style.
Sewanee Cares is how we promote well-being. It’s a framework for our expectations, policies, and practices in managing mental and physical health and the learning environment.
We encourage members of our community to care for one another, knowing that we are all imperfect. We use Sewanee Cares as a way to talk about our community—students, employees, and community members, and we know that care can take many forms. Under our shared definition, care is a call to action.
Sewanee Cares is our guide to identifying challenges and activating each of us to recognize it and act in a thoughtful, caring manner. We believe that we will be more effective when we share a common vocabulary and values that guide expectations for behavior. It takes all of us supporting one another to create a caring community.
