Ducks Do Something
We want every Duck to be the best version of themselves. But you weren't born knowing how to navigate every situation you'll encounter while in college. That's OK. We have resources and programs here to help you make healthy decisions and support your fellow Ducks, too. It is important that we are here for each other and understand how our actions affect our community so that we all can have a positive experience together. We encourage all Ducks, if you see something, say something! Ducks Do Something! Learn more about programs and student organizations working to support a safe and healthy campus.
Leadership and Involvement
You are a vital part of building a better community for all Ducks. We have a number of opportunities in the Dean of Students Office available for you to be a leader in your community. Maybe you want to build stronger multicultural communities or continue a legacy built on shared values. It could be providing your perspective on a committee, facilitating workshops, or student employment. Wherever your passion leads you, there are opportunities waiting.
All Sizes Fit is a positive body image campaign that aims to increase body positivity and decrease the social pressures associated with obtaining an "ideal body." All Sizes Fit focuses on three principles:
Attention: Be in touch with your body and its signals. Your body is excellent at regulating and letting you know what it needs in order to perform optimally.
Appreciation: Appreciate everything your body allows you to do and the pleasure it provides. It is because of your body that you can engage in the activities you love and enjoy what life has to offer.
Acceptance: Accept all the assets you have rather than longing for what you do not. Much of your body composition is predetermined by your genetics.
