Be Well at CMU

At Carnegie Mellon University, we believe our individual and collective well-being is rooted in healthy connections, to each other and to campus resources. How we care for ourselves and others is important to our success. There are a wide variety of resources, opportunities, and people that want to help you thrive inside and outside of the classroom.

Please sign up for our monthly BeWell@CMU e-newsletter that offers a comprehensive resource for CMU students, faculty and staff regarding wellness inspired events, announcements, and professional and personal development opportunities.
