For many students, a year of online learning has created a sense of isolation and little opportunity to get to know peers and professors.
The University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee hopes to change that with what it describes as a “human centered and trauma informed” return-to-campus plan. The effort—which includes new training, meditation spaces, and guided discussions—aims to help people form meaningful connections again, take care of themselves, and process their emotions.
