Gratitude: the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.
This campaign is about taking a few moments from your day to focus on what you have rather than what's missing. These are often overlooked in our day-to-day lives. Gratitude encourages you to pay attention to normal occurrences or interactions you normally take for granted. We encourage you to comment and interact with our social media campaign using the hashtag #gratefulUND.
We will also be distributing sticky notes for you to write a gratitude statement; an appreciative comment or something/someone you are grateful for. You can fill out more than one; the more the merrier!!The notes will be brought to the Wellness Center and posted on the wall in the landing area to make a Wall of Gratitude.
Sticky note locations:
- Wilkerson Dining Hall
- Wellness Center landing area
Still need more convincing? This article on practicing gratitude highlights the benefits linked to mental health, life satisfaction and physical health.

Deans for Wellness
The initiative started in 2012 with the hopes the academic Deans at UND would foster top-down leadership support of wellness at work for faculty and staff. We challenge each Dean to host an acitivty that promotes well-being in one or more areas of the 7 Dimensions of Wellness during the academic year. Deans for Wellness continues to provide opportunities for faculty and staff to model well-being to our students.
