Integrative Health and Wellbeing Workshop Series

Students listening in a library setting

The President’s Student Leadership Institute (PSLI) is a co-curricular certificate program designed to expose students to contemporary issues in leadership and professional development in order to prepare participants for professional leadership in a diverse workplace. PSLI is an interprofessional program that creates opportunities for students in different fields to interact and learn from one another. This program will use a series of lunchtime seminars, discussions, and service opportunities to support the learning throughout the course of the academic year. Unless otherwise noted, seminars will take place in the SMC Campus Center, third floor, from noon to 1 p.m. A light lunch will be available.

The Integrative Health and Wellbeing Workshop Series

Successful leadership requires a healthy leader. We can only lead to the degree that we are well enough to lead — body, mind, and spirit. Our energy, motivation, productivity, creativity, and interpersonal savvy are contingent upon our own health and well-being. Join us each month for our workshop series on Healthy Leadership, where you will learn science-based practices for stress management, burnout, and a positive mind-set; effective tools to enhance your wellbeing as a student and future health professional; and opportunities to practice tools that can contribute to a successful and healthy leader. UMB faculty and guest speakers from a variety of backgrounds will facilitate both experiential and didactic workshops to support your wellbeing.

Classes include:

  • Health Trends of Graduate Students and Future Health Professionals
  • Healthy Meal Planning for the Busy Student
  • Sleep Soundly
  • Creating a Vision Board
  • Building Resilience through Mindful Self-Compassion
  • Relationship Status: Its Complicated
  • Burnout: Managing Well-being
  • Religion and Spirituality in Patient-Centered Care
  • Health Information Resources for Culturally Diverse Populations
  • Death Cafe
  • and more!


Upon completion of the program, participants will be invited to a Student Leadership Awards and Recognition Ceremony. President Perman and the ISLSI team will recognize the President's Fellows and the PSLI program graduates by presenting them with certificates and the UMB medal. These students will be wearing the UMB medals proudly during Commencement. For more information on the PSLI Wellness Track, go to ISLSI's PSLI page.
