SMART is an acronym for Stress Management and Resiliency Training, which teaches participants skills to nurture “peace, happiness and emotional strength.” Students in First Year courses at Landmark College will benefit from this program, supported in part by a grant from Bringing Theory to Practice (BTtoP), a foundation that sponsors innovation in education. Landmark College has been awarded $10,000 to study the effects of resiliency training on campus.
