Before COVID-19


  • What were you most proud of?
  • What were you an expert at?
  • What systems had you put in place that worked really well?
  • What unique gift did you bring to the campus community?


  • What was the hardest part of your day?
  • What was the greatest frustration you held regarding your work?
  • What was your biggest struggle overall?
  • In what areas did you feel defeated?


  • Were you getting an adequate amount of sleep?
  • Were you eating well?
  • Did you have a personal self-care routine?
  • Did you have time to care for your personal needs?

Personal Life

  • Did you have a healthy work/life balance?
  • Were you making time for hobbies and interests?
