It’s been proven that kindness can improve your mental and physical wellbeing as well as reduce stress! Especially in times of COVID it is so important that we are kind to each other and grow together as one community. This campaign aims to reduce loneliness, encourage you as students and staff members to show each other your appreciation in form of little things and gestures to make each other feel happier and at home at the University of Leicester!
If you have any ideas of activities or events that would go perfectly with the campaign, please reach out to me and I will try to make it happen!
This campaign is for everyone, so get involved and let’s ensure this year is filled with love and kindness.
Karli, Your Wellbeing Officer 2020/21
... and remember #LeicsBeKind
Random Acts of Kindness Poster
As part of this campaign, we have created a poster for all our students to complete. We know that making friends can be difficult, especially during a pandemic. We hope that this helps to break down barriers and encourages you to reach out to others with a small act of kindness!
A downloadable version of this poster will be added soon so that you can print your own, if you haven't got one already.
Stronger Together Campaign
Monday 2 November - Friday 13 November
Our Stronger Together campaign is about creating a safe space for you to build and form new friendships, whilst empowering you to reach out and seek support if you need it. Remember, You are not alone. We’re in this together. #LeicsBeKind
As part of this campaign, we have organised workshops, online games and opportunities for you to get involved with. We know starting university is daunting and is a huge transition, let alone during a pandemic! We hope that this campaign helps you to make friends and discover new interests. We also want you to feel confident to reach out if you need support. We have our very own Advice Service who can provide free, valuable and confidential support and advice. You can also reach out to the University's Student Welfare Service. We're here to support you throughout your time here at Leicester.
