Message from Leadership: Summer Break – a time for Renewal

We are halfway through 2020!  Over the next three weeks, this is your time to relax, recharge, and learn new skills between now and the start of the Summer Quarter. Enjoy your downtime and practice social distancing as communities move into different phases of returning to the “new normal.” This week’s STC Thursday Byte features a range of opportunities to explore during Summer break.

However,  CityU and STC are providing renewal opportunities for Summer break.

Perseverance: The Importance of Mindset During Tough Times 

Tue. June 16 | 1 pm – 2 pm (PDT) 

How do we get ourselves to take consistent, deliberate action in the direction of our goals during tough times? The answer is mindset. When we adopt a mindset of perseverance we act differently and we are compelled to move towards our goals. In this session, Dr. Julie Miller will share her story along with those of individuals who exemplify this mindset. She will also share tools for you to practice this mindset on your own.
