February is Black History Month

Visit the University’s United in Action page for full event details

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Advocacy Council, Events Office, and Campus Life are proud to announce Post’s Black History Month event schedule for 2023!

Established the second week of February in 1926 by the Association for the Study of African American Life and History founder Dr. Carter G. Woodson, Negro History Week explored the “themes of how people of African descent in the United States have viewed themselves, the influence of social movements on racial ideologies, and the aspirations of the black community.”  The first official observance of Black History Month came in February 1976 with President Gerald Ford proclaiming:

In the Bicentennial year of our Independence, we can review with admiration the impressive contributions of black Americans to our national life….[T]o help highlight these achievements,  Dr. Carter G. Woodson founded the Association for the Study of Afro-American Life and History. We are grateful to him today for his initiative, and we are richer for the work of his organization.

In 1986, through a joint resolution of the US House of Representatives and Senate, the month of February was designated as “National Black History Month.”

The University continues its work to lead “positive, transformative changes within the Post University and Greater Waterbury community that support, cultivate and sustain diverse perspectives through conversations, events, and actions.”  We hope you’ll join us for the events we have planned!



Weekly Wellness Corner

The Weekly Wellness Corner is brought to you by the Counseling Center – here, you’ll find content, tips, tricks, programs, and resources to help you thrive as a Post Eagle!

Mel Robbins is a New York Times Bestselling author and host of her own podcast, in which she shares tools that empower people to create a better life. During one of her recent podcast episodes, she goes in-depth about how she overcame the hardest year of her life and how to recognize when the universe is trying to teach us during tough times.

Here is an exercise that will help you visualize what is and is not working in your life:

  • Stop and think about what life is trying to teach you right now.
  • Take out a sheet of paper and draw a line down the center of the page.
  • On the left side, write down what you dislike about your life and on the right side, write down all the things you love.
  • Anything in your life that is causing you friction, frustration, or struggle, is all on the left-hand side.
  • Once you create this list you will clearly see where the friction in your life lies.

Life wants you to be happy and for you to enjoy yourself; The universe wants you to be in alignment. Wherever you have friction, there is a broken process or something this is no longer aligned with you. You deserve to live a life with no tension and be able to surround yourself with things that serve you.
