Student Wellness plans, implements, and evaluates health promotion and prevention strategies that focus on health and wellness issues that directly affect student success, higher learning, and personal development such as Power-based personal violence, suicide, mental health, substance use, body image and disordered eating, sexual health and more.
Research shows that student health and wellbeing is inextricably linked to academic success, retention and persistence to graduation.
Students who are not physically, mentally, emotionally and socially well are more likely to leave the institution, have poor academic performance, and engage in risky behaviors that can affect them legally, socially and personally.
