What guides our work

Vision: A campus where all students thrive

Mission: To partner with students to foster personal and community well-being in college and beyond

Principles:

  • All students deserve equitable access to wellness: Societal, cultural, historical, and environmental factors fundamentally impact health. We are committed to building a culture of well-being that is accessible to all.
  • Everyone’s wellness is connected. Each of us impacts the health of our campus community. We seek to infuse well-being into campus culture, address systemic challenges to well-being, and support positive social norms.
  • Holistic wellness is part of success: We are committed to partnering with students to integrate all aspects of their well-being including: intellectual, occupational, spiritual, environmental, emotional, physical, financial, and social.
  • Every student’s path to well-being is unique: We support students in authoring their own definitions of happy, well, successful, and healthy as they continue to build meaningful and authentic lives.

Areas of focus:

  • Brief Interventions and Motivational Interviewing
  • Communications
  • Recovery Support 
  • Strategic Leadership for Harm Reduction, Community Well-being and Health Promotion
  • Student Engagement and Academic Partnership

Strategies:

  • Build Capacity: Mentor, train, and equip students, families, faculty, and staff to support students in developing skills for lifelong well-being.
  • Communicate: Communicate with students and campus stakeholders about personal and community well-being by eliciting students' input, using relevant strategies and acknowledging their autonomy.
  • Evaluate: Engage in strategic needs assessment, apply evidence, and measure program effectiveness to optimize our work. 
  • Partner: Collaborate with campus and community members to maximize collective impact and encourage an inclusive culture of well-being.
