Thriving In Action

School is hard sometimes. But learning better, feeling better, and doing better is possible.

Join a Thriving in Action Weekly Cohort

Was your last academic year tough? Didn’t get the grades you’d hoped for? Want to do better but don’t know where to start? Thriving in Action is a ThriveRU initiative to help struggling students (in their second year and beyond) thrive, academically and personally. Build motivation, optimism, and resilience, along with learning strategy essentials like time management and effective studying. It’s not too late to turn things around, and it’s never too late to learn how to flourish! Join us for our holistic 11-week program and learn how to thrive.

Thriving in Action welcomes all students including those on academic probation, students on the Centre for Student Development and Counselling (CSDC) waitlist, students with disabilities, and injured or struggling athletes. We welcome racialized and minoritized students, Indigenous students, equity-seeking students, LGBTQQIP2SAA students. We welcome mature students, international students. We welcome Spanning the Gaps students, Fresh Start students, grad students, working students, and students raising or caring for families. In other words, if you feel like you’re ready to learn and practise new strategies to thrive personally and academically, we not just welcome but encourage you to give Thriving in Action a try.
