An integrative and holistic wellness model is used to promote and enhance the health and well-being of students through support and education on a variety of aspects of well-being. Through health education, prevention programs, support for students in crisis, and strategies to thrive, this department invites each student to consider how to maximize opportunities to support a well-balanced life.
 
A broad wellness model, which identifies eight dimensions of wellness, promotes a holistic approach to development of our campus and students.
 
Physical - Caring for one’s body and protecting from injury and harm
Emotional – Awareness, acceptance and coping of emotions, feelings and thoughts in a healthy and adaptive manner
Spiritual – Exploring meaning and purpose; expanding beliefs, principles, and values to give direction to one’s life
Intellectual – Engaging in stimulating mental activity, recognizing creative ability, and expanding knowledge and skills
Social – Development of a sense of connection and belonging as well as a mature support system
Environmental - Occupying environments that are pleasant, stimulating, and support well-being
Financial – Satisfaction and competence with managing current and future financial situations
Occupational – Satisfaction and enrichment through work, professional growth and preparation, and use of one’s gifts, skills, and talents
Student Wellness & Health Promotions and Student Affairs departments, which focus on wellness, are here to lend support and help. We want our students’ time at Lynn to be healthy, happy, and memorable.
 
We provide support to promote wellness through:
 
Prevention education and support including information on self-care and how to incorporate it into the daily routine
Wellness partnerships in the local community
Programs pertaining to a healthy and satisfying lifestyle and overall well-being of mind, body, and spirit
Assistance to students through referrals to on- and off-campus resources and appropriate specialists
Wellness related dialogue and ideation
Wellness Educators are a diverse group of student leaders, role models, and peers who provide quality, innovative, and inclusive programs and events to challenge Lynn University students to make informed and responsible decisions regarding their health. Students are engaged through programs in residence halls and presentations in classrooms on subjects such as healthy eating, coping with stress, healthy relationships, and responsible decision making.
 
Wellness Educators are selected at the end of each academic year through an application and interview process. To learn more about becoming a Wellness Educator, stop by the Office of Student Wellness or contact a member of our team.
