Lead. Nurture.Foster. Empower.

We foster students' lifelong well-being.

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.

Failure Redefined

McWell has developed a new initiative, Failure Redefined, which is designed to challenge perfectionism by encouraging students, faculty and staff to embrace failure.  Failure is part of being human; we all fail at some point in our lives and that is okay! Student, please join us Monday, April 29th for an art-themed Health Hut experience at 1:30 at the South Quad flagpole, and again at 7pm in Carey Auditorium (1st floor of Hesburgh Library) for Caitie Whelan’s workshop, The Art of Risk Taking, where there will be VIP prizes for the first 15 attendees. Stories of resilience will also be shared through our Instagram account - follow along @McWellND.

In Light of Recent Events

The staff of the McDonald Center for Student Well-Being are horrified and deeply saddened by the hate based violence that has plagued our country of late.  We stand by students, staff, and faculty of every religion, color, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, social or economic class, and nationality.  Belongingness is a well-being issue. If we are not a part of helping everyone feel that they belong, we are part of the problem.  Please, join our staff in lifting up the victims and survivors and do our part, wherever we are, to make our communities safe, supportive and welcoming.   …

Be Well
