Week of June 1, 2020, Theme: New Normal

About Us is a multi-media project intended to provide inspiration and encouragement to our UIUC colleagues as we lean in through these difficult times. We will provide weekly common themes composed by the counseling staff at Faculty/Staff Assistance Services (FSAS) followed by daily content contributed by all who are willing to share related inspiration, observation, and experience. Help to create this journey that reminds us of who we are under circumstances that challenge us to be the best version of ourselves.
