New Course at UConn Hartford Brings Mindfulness to Students

Papacostas Ginolfi – who at one time was herself a first-generation, low-income TRIO student, and has been working with similarly situated students for more than 19 years – created the Resilience through Mindfulness course to help address what she has seen as an unmet need among students. As a coordinator and counselor, Ginolfi provides one-on-one advising and support to students who are often facing personal or economic challenges in addition to the rigors of higher education.
