More than just credentials
The best postsecondary education provides both academic knowledge and personal development.
In our constantly evolving world, you know you need both to give you the confidence and ability to thrive in whatever career, and future, you choose.
That’s why your Sheridan education is about so much more than a credential.
It’s been deliberately designed to nurture your personal development and growth through a model that we call S-Sense.
What is S-Sense?
S-Sense is a program designed to help you become more resilient, confident and able to adapt.
The S-Sense program gives you access to innovative technology and experiences that will support your journey.
S-Sense is characterized by how we Think, Relate, Innovate and Evolve (T.R.I.E.)
These are skills that will support you on whatever path you choose, and that employers will deeply value and admire:
Your ability to think — to be open to new ideas, to welcome new perspectives and to recognize biases. To challenge your own assumptions and think critically in every situation so you’re flexible and able to adapt.
Your ability to relate — to understand your own emotions, and to empathize and connect with others who have had different experiences. To give and receive feedback in a way that’s constructive and empowering.
Your ability to innovate — to come up with new ideas but also to take risks, to fail and move forward. To look for solutions in unexpected places and to be open to different approaches.
As you develop these skills, you’ll begin to see how important they are and your desire to continue to evolve — in work and in life — will grow. With reflection and self‑awareness, you’ll face the future with confidence.
“Being able to learn from your experiences arises from how you relate to yourself and others in every experience – how you greet and respond to each moment of doubt, excitement, overwhelm, setback, difference, challenge and uncertainty. How you think, relate, innovate and evolve.”– Cherie Werhun, Associate Vice-Provost, Human Development and Potential
