Campus health and wellness programs have evolved over the years to promote physical health, nutrition, and mental health for students. The pandemic has made it more urgent for institutions to consider the multidimensional determinants of health and a holistic approach to wellness. How do we address elevated levels of stress on campus through design and programming? How do we design facilities and outdoor spaces for better health outcomes? What role does wellness play in fostering student success and belonging? Come learn from our panel of experts as they share their insights on creating healthier campus environments that support student wellbeing.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Define the premise of wellbeing and the eight dimensions of wellness and explain how they apply to campus design and programming initiatives
  2. Tie physical campus and building design principles to drive healthy spaces and positive student health outcomes.
  3. Gain insights into student mental health needs and the value of investing in comprehensive wellness programs.
  4. Explore available resources and potential partners to support your institution's wellbeing goals for the physical campus environment as well as health and wellness programs.
