Vision: A campus where all students thrive
Mission: To partner with students to foster personal and community well-being in college and beyond
- 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:
- Wellness Coaching and Motivational Interviewing
- Recovery Support
- Strategic Leadership for Harm Reduction, Community Well-being and Health Promotion
- Student Engagement and Academic Partnerships
- 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.
Well-being: We provide information and referrals, provide early intervention, collaborate and consult, and influence policy and advocate for the U-M campus community. Well-being infuses our work.
Wellness course: This academic class helps students gain a foundation and practical experience in well-being. See Wellness Course.
