Machine Learning Department Wellness Network
The Machine Learning Department Wellness Network is a group of faculty, staff, and students committed to promoting wellness in the department, especially among (but not limited to) Ph.D. students, Masters students, and Post-docs.
We maintain a calendar with office hours and small group activities linked here (or here for an external link). What are these events you see?
Office hours: These are held by faculty and staff members of the Wellness Network. Look for the events on the calendar with "OH" in the title. You can come talk about concerns and/or seek advice on a wide variety of issues (including program-related, career-related, and personal issues) in a safe and confidential space. Also note that you can stop by with small concerns or even just for a friendly chat!
Anybody is welcome to drop by, you don't need to give advanced notice. But please note that, if you'd like to ensure privacy, then it would be a good idea to email the faculty/staff member ahead of time and he/she can block off the time as "occupied" on the calendar.
Small group activities: These are hosted by (mostly) our student members of the Wellness Network. Look for the events that don't have "OH" in the title. Come join us on fun activities like walking, running, biking, yoga, climbing, movie nights, Pittsburgh touring, coffee drinking, etc.
Feel free to email the group member whose name is associated with the event for more info. And click on the event in the calendar to see more details about where to meet, etc. Again, anybody is welcome to come, you don't need to give advanced notice.
