Student well-being at the heart of the Rennes School of Business Feel Good initiative
A focus on student health, well-being, diversity, inclusion and ethical behaviour.
Rennes School of Business places student well-being at the heart of its identity and has recently implemented its new “Feel Good” initiative, run and organised by the CCWB department (Career Centre & Well-being) with the aim of providing the tools, support and resources that each student needs to expand and flourish in their daily life and future career. Its principal values are Support – Listen – Act – Train – Advise – Inform.
The “Feel Good” initiative is based on three main pillars:
Health and well-being:
The health and well-being pole of the “Feel Good” initiative involves several actions aimed at ensuring the physical and mental health of our community. Students have access to workshops and conferences on addiction prevention, sexual health, sleep and stress management and sophrology.
From the start of the 2022-2023 academic year, students will also be able to have confidential discussions with a health professional with the creation of our new Health Point, dedicated to:
- Listening to students who are in a situation of discomfort or facing personal difficulties
- Information and health advice.
Diversity and Inclusion:
The diversity and inclusion division is designed to accompany students living with severe or chronic illnesses or disabilities, as well as those from financially unstable backgrounds. Students are able to speak to the diversity officer, discretely and confidentially, for individual, personalised support.
Ethical issues play a key role in the Feel Good structure at Rennes SB. This division is based on fighting against all forms of harassment, hazing, sexual and gender-based violence and discrimination through a combination of preventative actions:
- An anonymous online reporting platform
- An annual survey to gather student views on these subjects
- A combination of preventive actions, including mandatory training on sexual and gender-based violence for all students, and workshops to raise awareness on harassment, hazing and discrimination.
“More than ever, during this turbulent time, our students need to be listened to, advised, supported and accompanied. Beyond academic support, we want to be able to help our students to live their experience at Rennes SB in the best possible conditions. We believe that in order to find their path, our students must feel good in their day-to-day life and during their studies, which is why we have implanted our new Feel Good initiative.” Pauline Bebin, Student Care Manager, CCWB.
