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

Good morning #MasonNation! Another warm day today! Today's reminder to get out and get some sunshine. Maybe grab a friend and have a picnic lunch outside! Or just enjoy walking or hiking.
