Empathic Peers Offering Wisdom, Encouragement, and Resources (EmPOWER) is a College of Engineering (CoE) initiative to promote mental health and wellness among engineering graduate students. EmPOWER’s activities include a graduate student mentoring. network, where senior and junior students in each department are paired to create a support system for junior students and provide mentoring opportunities for senior students. At the department level, EmPOWER hosts monthly de-stressing events (such as movie nights, craft making, and hikes), as well as personal development workshops. We also organize CoE-wide social events, and workshops focused on professional development. Please refer to our calendar to learn more about upcoming EmPOWER events.
