With our increasingly plugged-in lives, it's important to establish expectations and set boundaries around email and work time for weekends, evenings, and vacations. Come out and learn how others successfully disconnect and unplug without making things worse.
Who is this for? Faculty members who suffer from overwork, struggle to set boundaries between work and home life, want to spend less time staring at a screen, and/or feel guilty when they actually take time off.
