Eight Dimensions of Well-Being

The Office of Health Promotion and Education equips and empowers students to achieve lifelong well-being through behaviors that lead to healthy outcomes and long-term success. Our goal is to support student success through various programs and experiential learning opportunities. We do the following:

  • Help our students develop skills to improve their overall well-being
  • Engage students in their communities and environments, where health and wellness play a part in their everyday success
  • Empower students to see the interconnection between their health and well-being along with their ability to learn, work, enjoy life and contribute to their community

Our work aligns with the University's strategic plan and the vision for Student Health and Wellness (SHAW) within the Division of Student Affairs. We provide a variety of programs and experiential learning opportunities that provide our students with essential skills that focus on the Eight Dimensions of Well-Being.

Programs and Services

We provide a variety of inclusive programs, events and resources that meet the needs of our students. They range from in-person training and interactive education pop-ups to online training modules that help with goal setting, resiliency and self-help strategies.

Community Health and Research

We believe that health is wealth; therefore, we will engage in initiatives and projects that improve the health and well-being of not only our campus community but the community at large. We provide essential services through grant-funded initiatives that address areas such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), emotional health, nutrition and mindfulness, to name a few. Through these opportunities, we can address health disparities and provide community-based outreach to have a positive impact on generational health.
