Cura Educational Resources
We all have areas where we can grow and develop in order to support the Cura standards. Sometimes, this is as simple as reminding ourselves what we already know. Other times it means finding opportunities to re-think how we can apply what we already know in new situations or even learning new approaches to working with our colleagues.
Check out the resources below for opportunities for faculty and staff to learn more about the Cura program as well as workshops, classes, videos and other resources to help us all foster a culture of understanding, respect and appreciation.
View the Cura Events Calendar to discover opportunities for SLU faculty and staff to come together to build a culture of understanding, respect, and appreciation, as well as learn more about creating positive working relationships. If your department has an upcoming event related to Cura, submit the information to add the event to the Cura Events Calendar through this form.

Becoming a Champion for a Positive Work Culture Workshops
A workplace culture of trust, respect and appreciation is essential for employee engagement, well-being and productivity. This two-part workshop (2 hours total) provides your team an opportunity to examine our University's overall workplace culture, reflect on ways that we contribute to - or distract from - a positive workplace culture, and identify the factors that affect our team's workplace culture. Participants will create a customized action plan for how they can improve the workplace culture within their team.
Contact email@example.com to learn more and request the workshop for your group.
Cura Values Meeting Activities
One way to integrate Cura into your daily work is to start a meeting with a simple statement of the Cura standards and values. The Cura Values Meeting Activities includes a brief script for how to start your meeting with a reminder of how to create a positive workplace culture, as well as several short reflections and activities to form stronger relationships with your colleagues.
