About Thriving and Learning in Action

Thriving and Learning in Action is based on the successful Thriving in Action program developed by Dr. Diana Brecher and Dr. Deena Kara Shaffer at Toronto Metropolitain University. Through a collaboration between Campus Wellness & Support Services and the Student Success Centre, the program has been adapted for Concordia students as Thriving and Learning in Action.

Combining elements of positive psychology and learning strategies, Thriving and Learning in Action aims to provide students with skills to succeed both academically and personally.
