Student well-being at the heart of the new 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 SENSe department (Student Experience, Network and Services) with the aim of providing the tools, support and resources that each student needs to expand and flourish in their daily life. 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 will have access to workshops on addiction prevention, sexual health, stress-management and sophrology, with more topics to be added in the second semester.

Students will also benefit from 24-hour access to the PROS-CONSULTE psychological support platform, launched in November 2020, through which they can be connected to a trained professional at any time, accessible in French, English, Spanish, Chinese and to the hard-of-hearing. The student has the option of selecting the counsellor with whom they feel most comfortable using the PROS-CONSULTE website and the calls are free and anonymous.

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. Different funding schemes are available to help students with financial difficulties. Students are able to speak to the diversity officer, discretely and confidentially, for individual, personalised support.

Ethics:

Ethical issues play a key role in the new Feel Good structure at Rennes SB. This division is based on fighting against all forms of harassment, hazing and discrimination through a combination of preventative actions and the launch of an online, anonymous reporting platform. Other key actions include participation in the French national day against harassment, which will carry on throughout the month of November, this year focusing on the fight against sexual harassment.

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, SENSe.
