Getting Things Done

The Getting Things Done groups are for Columbia College and Columbia Engineering students who are struggling and may not be performing up to their potential due to procrastination or poor time management. Each group is co-facilitated by two staff members in the Berick Center for Student Advising, in collaboration with Dr. Shirley Matthews of Counseling and Psychological Services, to create a community of support and accountability.

Members will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn time management strategies and, with the support of the group, break free from the negative patterns that may be preventing them from accomplishing their personal and academic goals.
  • Learn cognitive behavioral techniques that can increase efficiency, effectiveness, competence and confidence, thereby improving their ability to get things done.
  • Have a safe space in which anything shared will be treated as confidential, unless facilitators have concerns for a participant's well-being or for the safety of other community members.

Each group will consist of about eight students, each of whom will commit to attending the 75-minute weekly meeting for the semester.

Beginning TBD there will be a group meeting at TBDThis group will be open to first-year-senior Columbia College and Columbia Engineering undergraduates.
