Our Community Collective is open to all prospective and current students, staff, non-regular and regular faculty, alumni, drop-outs, those on sabbatical, leave of absence, or all unsure about their relationship with university culture.
What can you expect? A completely online, informal, and open-hearted gathering space and self-identified peer support – no agenda, formal diagnosis, or social skills required.
Our Thursday Socials are in addition to our online Discord Community.
Which, you can sign up for both, using our website!
Guiding Principles Of Gathering
Let’s make a space where it's okay to show up for 5 minutes, for 2 minutes, or for the whole time.
Where it's okay to cancel at the last minute.
Where we can show up in our big feelings and not know how to name them.
Where can be tired, stressed, exhausted, distracted, confused, "too much", and everything else.
Where we don’t need to hide our tears.
Where all forms of participation are optional, and guided by choice and personal agency however you need to in that moment, on that day.
Where we can bring our whole selves without shame, and without feeling any expectations on us.
Where our voices can overlap.
Where our joy can be expansive and physically expressed.
Where our dependents, human and non-human, are also welcome.
