The last few weeks have brought unprecedented levels of change to our lives—changes in how we learn and go to school, changes in work and employment, and changes in our social lives. But we can manage—and perhaps even thrive during this time. Here, we offer resources to help Redbirds continue to thrive, even though we are separated and away from campus. We’re still Redbirds and we're going to Keep Learning, Keep Teaching, and Keep Thriving!

Below we have listed some tips on how to take care of yourself after a loss and other resources that we hope will help you navigate this difficult time.
