Body Image Literacy Project

In line with our mission of advancing our female students’ academic and professional development, this project promotes awareness on self-worth, body image, and confidence​ as student participants viewed Jesse Epstein’s Body Typed and engaged in a panel discussion on the media and its unrealistic standards of physical beauty with resource speakers from the psychology and communication departments and Ms. Dixie State 2016; attended an action-oriented workshop on self-perception with guest facilitators from the Health and Wellness Center’s mental health counselors and Ms. Utah 2015-2016; and shared their reflections and experiences in a digital narratives collection to sustain the conversation on campus.
