Holistic Health and Wellness


Focus on holistic health and wellness for students, faculty and staff.

  • Reinforce an environment that prioritizes physical health, mental health and overall wellness as a foundation for lifelong success and happiness.
  • Continue to develop physical spaces for mindfulness, spirituality, reflective practices and meaningful social engagement, as well as fitness, recreation and athletics.
  • Develop a destination space for students where wellness is promoted through expert delivery of services, including health services, counseling and psychological services, and other university programs committed to holistic well-being. Continue to develop healthier dining options, while further developing traditional dining areas as social and interactive venues.
  • Systematically explore ways to reduce unnecessary stress in the academic environment and to promote an appropriate work-life balance.
