Abstract

Faculty and staff in higher education today face obstacles such as reduced resources, increased workloads, and uncertain expectations. In this context, the authors have worked to create a sustainable and resilient community using arts-based interventions. The chapter begins with a review of the literature on arts-based interventions for well-being, with a focus on supporting faculty and staff in higher education. The authors outline the steps they have taken, through their Arts and Health Collaborative, to create a sustainable environment of support. By providing sample workshop outlines and recommendations for systemic changes, they share an arts and health model that others can implement on their own campuses.
