New for Students: Well-being on Canvas


We are excited to share a new resource for you, a well-being website on Canvas!

Students have asked for an easy way to access campus well-being resources from one place. Canvas was suggested as that go-to place, and we listened. Over the past year, we worked alongside you to create this brand-new tool.

You may have already noticed the new U-M Model of Well-being throughout campus, and now you can find the colorful icon on the main Canvas menu! Click on it to:

  • Learn about the U-M Model of Well-being, which extends beyond physical and mental health

  • Explore campus resources to help you accomplish your well-being goals

  • Step back from the books and take a break with videos to guide meditation, have a laugh, or make a snack

  • Stay up-to-date on campus events that promote student well-being

  • Ask a question, offer feedback, suggest a resource, and more

  • Use the “Communications Toolkit” (found in the site footer) to share this information with other U-M students

We hope you enjoy this new site as one of the many ways that the University of Michigan supports your well-being. And we welcome your feedback, which you can provide through the “Contact” form on the site.

Go Blue!
