New Wellness App from the Counseling Center: TAO Connect

TAO Connect is a new on-line resource now available to students from the Counseling Center.

These are challenging times for all as we navigate new technology and readjust our everyday lives. TAO Connect is an app and online resource program that helps you explore wellness topics and guides you through creating strategies that can be applied in your daily life. Maybe you are looking for some strategies for dealing with this stressful time or maybe you want to preventatively learn some meditation and mindfulness techniques prior to final exams. The pathways on TAO can help you address these and many more areas. And, you can access all of this from the comfort of wherever you are.

Each treatment/pathway in TAO consists of 6-7 highly engaging educational modules, including interactive activities to help you learn strategies and skills. Typically, a program can be completed within 6 to 9 weeks when committing about 15 minutes per day. Additionally, if focused problems unexpectedly surface, such as anxiety or stress, you can always access individual modules to reinforce what you have learned.

Here’s how to get started:

  1. Set up an account hereYou must use your email address.

Virtual Strategic Planning with President Hsu

Over the past few months, more than 5,000 College of Charleston faculty, staff, students, administrators, alumni and community members have participated in the initial phases of the College’s strategic planning process. Many actively participated in workshops and focus groups, while others completed surveys and provided feedback on the strategic planning website about how the campus community could create a shared vision of the College of Charleston’s future and make that vision a reality. The Office of the President and the Strategic Planning Steering Committee (SPSC) are incredibly grateful to everyone who has taken the time to participate thus far.

The final phase of the strategic planning process has begun. On Tuesday, April 7 and Wednesday, April 8, the entire campus community is once again invited to participate in the strategic planning process by previewing the draft strategic plan and offering feedback and input at virtual town hall sessions.

Sessions will be held:

Tuesday, April 7 from 11:30am – 1:00 p.m.

Wednesday, April 8 from 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

To RSVP to attend a virtual town hall, please fill out this form.

For those who aren’t able to attend, a recording of the session, the draft strategic plan, and a survey link will be posted on the strategic planning website following the town halls.
