Working Groups

At the Institute for Human Development and Well-being, we seek to embed wellness into how we work, collaborate, play, and investigate. A working group is not only a convergence of transdisciplinary researchers but also a home for like-minded people from relevant non-research backgrounds. A working group is a place for interested members of our community, stakeholders, activists, artists, and researchers from many disciplines to come together and connect. Working groups generate a myriad of community projects, course offerings, research initiatives and new friendships.
