CoJourn Campus Cohort Program
It has been a challenging year working in higher education.
No matter our role, whether we are student affairs professionals, faculty, or graduate students we have navigated unprecedented complexities and difficulties. We could all use a little support, and a way to gather our own energy so we can continue to be there for others.

"Last Spring semester our program wanted to offer more support to our graduate students in Social Justice Education, as many felt very disconnected from each other due to Covid and the weight of daily online communication. I had heard great things about CoJourn…and was also impressed with its emphasis on listening and other valuable dialogic practices. We sponsored a program open to current graduate students and alumni to pair as accountability partners using the 12-week CoJourn model. Program participants reported feeling grateful to meet regularly with a peer, and to make intentional and thoughtful movement on a range of areas, including self-care, academic writing and professional goals, as well as feeling more connected in shared care."

"During the height of the pandemic, I developed intense insomnia and started drinking more. The death of my dad, a child struggling with remote school, and a daily avalanche of heartbreaking news made me wonder whether there would ever be light at the end of the tunnel. I decided to join the CoJourn program, a research-backed framework designed to harness the power of connection to help people make the most of their lives. During the three months, participants set goals for themselves and are matched with an accountability partner for weekly check-ins. I had the goals of reducing my alcohol intake to one or two drinks a week and meditating at least once a day. I hit the jackpot with my assigned accountability partner, and six months later, I'm still meditating and sticking with one or two drinks a week. It's possible to create new habits in just 12 weeks. In terms of cost, CoJourn is ridiculously inexpensive."

"Our data shows that loneliness and motivation are two of the most significant concerns for our students. This program addresses both with heart and connection. In my own life, CoJourn has drawn me closer to my brother through a period of struggle for both of us, and CoJourn for Racial Justice (and my partner) has challenged me to get uncomfortable in all the important ways, and to grow through connection in the ways I work for social justice personally and professionally.
