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.
