About AcademEase: Enhancing Wellness in Higher Education

Within Higher Education Institutions students and faculty are experiencing increasing levels of stress-related illnesses. As this epidemic persists, universities have struggled to find lasting solutions to assist students and staff in managing the pressures they face. Although there are a wide-range of wellness tools available that have been proven to reduce stress and enhance wellbeing, these approaches have yet to be integrated into academic settings. AcademEase was created with the intention of promoting wellness in institutions of higher learning. Our aim is to tailor wellness tools to the specific types of stresses that students and academic staff confront—whether it’s exam stress, anxiety surrounding dissertation writing, delivering academic presentations, the pressures of publishing, or applying for academic jobs. We take a holistic approach to stress and offer a range of supportive services for staff and students in the form of wellness workshops, lectures and one-to-one wellness coaching.
