Learn Well - Be Well - Stay Well - Miner Well

Student Wellness promotes healthy behaviors to foster a campus environment conducive to academic, professional, and personal success.

Wellness is an active, continuing process of becoming more aware of and making choices towards a fulfilling, thriving life (National Wellness institute). It is crucial to address both individual and environmental influences on health and well-being. An environmental approach recognizes that individuals are influenced by the behaviors of others as well as the availability of resources.

Student Wellness promotes a multi-dimensional model of wellness through use of a variety of strategies. Efforts are guided by research, theory, and best practices.  We implement initiatives that address each of the dimensions of wellness.  Student Wellness provides prevention and early intervention strategies that promote self-management and enhance students’ resiliency.  Student Wellness seeks to create career-ready graduates by providing experiential learning opportunities through Joe’s PEERS and Peer Wellness Educators.

At its core, health promotion works to prevent the development of personal and campus population-level health problems, while enhancing individual, group and institutional health and safety. Effective practice of health promotion in higher education requires professionals to understand and apply a socioecological approach.

"Wellness is about being positive and proactive. Wellness is preventive. Wellness is optimistic. Wellness is never-ending. Wellness is a journey."    David S. Anderson
