Academic Affairs/Continuing Education Committee
The SPTA Academic Committee is a group of PT students that work collaboratively with the all of the PT faculty, students, and staff on subjects such as final exam scheduling, upholding academic honesty policies, and communicating all academic concerns from classmates. Additionally, the committee builds greater academic bonds and social relationships between the different graduate classes.
The committee works to create opportunities for de-stressing activities that promote overall student physical health and mental well-being. For Spring 2017, the Academic Committee hosted a Daemen campus-wide “Find Your Zen” yoga program. The committee partnered with a local yoga studio to bring an instructor on campus to teach a one-hour Vinyssa yoga class. Also, for this event the committee partnered with the Social/Alumni Committee to use the yoga event as a fundraiser for the department’s annual charity gala to support SABAH. During this program, students were able to tap into their mindfulness and breath while connecting with other community members and fundraising for a great local charity. This program truly promoted relaxation, a stronger PT family, and more importantly a donation to SABAH.
