The Division of Health and Wellness unites the Wellness Center and Prevention and Advocacy office with Athletics and recreational/fitness activity—a more holistic approach to promoting healthy lifestyles and a more nurturing campus culture to support our students.

The team works closely with student affairs to create a residential experience viewed through the broad lens of student wellbeing.
