Well Beyond

We foster students' lifelong well-being.

The McDonald Center for Student Well-Being strategically assesses the environment and creates structures for wellness enhancement and risk reduction. Using evidence-based practices and collaborating with a range of campus partners, we work collectively to provide initiatives, services, and resources that support the eight dimensions of well-being.
