About

Now more than ever, we believe kindness is essential in uplifting compassion, connectedness, and courage in advocating for our common humanity. The goal of Mason Chooses Kindness is to ensure that there are ongoing activities/ resources for our Mason students, faculty/staff, alumni and community to explore, engage in, and most of all, opportunities to spread kindness.

Mission: Create and sustain an infectious kindness revolution at Mason

Vision: As Mason Patriots, we change the world one small act of kindness at a time.

Mason’s Definition of Kindness: Intentionally engage in positive action that is friendly, caring, and compassionate towards self and others.

Mason – A Well-Being University: At Mason, we believe that we thrive together with shared success as one of our core values. Our goal is to evolve as a model well-being university, providing a place for all members of our Mason community where everyone thrives while contributing to others’ well-being. 


We believe that young people are uniquely positioned to create this kinder, braver world because they are filled with hope, compassion, and a commitment to community, and they are defined by diversity, inclusivity, and a distinct perseverance that make them powerful beyond even their own wildest imaginations. ~ Lady Gaga

My partner has invested in my Mason Spirit by sewing a classy black face mask (using a Mason Athletics patch from a 10-year-old sweatband giveaway) & is in week 2 of replacing all the elastic in my 15-year-old Mason black hooded jacket with the identical patch, pushing the edge of her sewing skills on my behalf.

“One of my favorite memories of kindness from this year was dropping off a care package for my sister when she was sick with COVID just before Thanksgiving. She was no longer able to visit our family because of her illness, so I stayed in the area and put together a package of facemasks, sweets, and funny items to pick up her spirits. I knocked on her door and ran clear down the hallway so that when she opened it, she was able to have her first human interaction in several weeks. It was such a joy to see her in person and, although not healthy, smiling from the thought that had gone into the package.

As for a kind-centered goal that I would like to set for myself in 2022, I would like to volunteer more service hours in the public health field in the fight against COVID-19.”
