The Virtual Gratitude Graffiti Project Launches April 4

Practicing gratitude is one of the most reliable methods for increasing positivity and life satisfaction. For the sixth consecutive year, Kent State will participate in the Gratitude Graffiti Project, a practice of purposeful reflection and appreciation expressed through interactive art. The first three years consisted of poster boards filled of colorful post-it notes with sentiments of gratitude, as well as window displays reflecting window chalk expressions of thankfulness across all KSU campuses. In 2020, Gratitude Graffiti went virtual, and we continue that this year during the month of April. 

The 2022 Gratitude Graffiti Project officially launches April 4! All employees are encouraged to add electronic sticky notes with messages of gratitude to our shared online Gratitude Boards. To get started, visit the Week 1 Gratitude Board, read and enjoy the contributions of others, then add your own note.

To add a message, click on a colored sticky note icon in the top right corner. Type your message of gratitude and format it as you wish. Next, choose a location for your sticky note. The board goes beyond what the screen initially displays. Use the grid in the bottom right corner to navigate around the board.

There will be a new board and prompt each week. Bookmark the Gratitude Graffiti landing page and stay tuned to your weekly Employee Wellness emails for links to each week's board. With questions about Gratitude Graffiti or other wellness offerings for faculty and staff, contact Employee Wellness at 330-672-0392, or
