Lynn students

Student Wellness & Health Promotions is a partnership of people, programs, services, and policies which supports a culture of health and wellness for Lynn University students.

Wellness at Lynn University is defined as making healthy lifestyle choices regarding mind, body, and spirit, and these characteristics are the common thread of the programs and services interwoven in all offices focused on student well-being. 



The purpose of Lynn University’s Student Wellness & Health Promotions is to promote and enhance the health and well-being of our students, within an integrative wellness model, by providing high-quality resources and education to the student body.  It is our belief that wellness and holistic development are important for:

  • Student success
  • Life beyond academics
  • Healthy attitudes and wellness skills
  • Proactive and reactive education and support
  • Social interplay
  • Shared responsibility

What We Do

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.

We focus on a broad wellness model, which identifies four dimensions of wellness and promotes a holistic approach to the development of our campus and students. 

  • Well-being of learning: Engaging in stimulating mental activity, recognizing creative ability, and expanding knowledge and skills while learning and enhancing your abilities and talents to find joy every day.
  • Well-being of relationships: Development of a sense of belonging as well as a support system that promotes positive relationships in your life.
  • Well-being of self: Effectively managing you. Awareness, acceptance, and coping of emotions, feelings, and thoughts in a healthy and adaptive manner. Learning and developing a core belief system that helps guide decision-making.
  • Well-being of community: A feeling of connection with others as a result of sharing common interests, goals, and viewpoints that lead to the development of the self you present to the world.
