STRATEGIC GOAL 5: Well-being, Diversity and Inclusion

Enable employees and students to reach their full personal and professional potential by promoting and cultivating a college-wide climate of well-being and inclusivity through assessment, training, and increased visibility of available resources

  • Assign a chair to lead the Committee
  • Identify committee members (staff, students, and faculty)
  • Schedule annual meetings
  • Coordinate wellness efforts with appropriate school units

Conduct a survey of student, staff, and faculty to assess perceptions of wellbeing culture, cultural sensitivity, diversity, and inclusivity at the school and address issues identified


  • Develop clinical practice agreements for “co-funded” clinical faculty
  • Develop billable clinical services with clinical affiliates that allow for revenue sharing
  • Explore options for providing pharmacy services for student and employee health

Develop and enhance the research enterprise


  • Develop and administer survey
  • Analyze data and provide summary to Wellness Committee for review
  • Create action plans based on issues identified

Provide diversity and inclusion training to students, faculty, and staff

  • Incorporate cultural sensitivity, campus climate, and inclusion topics into annual faculty retreat
  • Incorporate cultural sensitivity, diversity, and inclusivity training into staff development week

Increase visibility of available resources that promote and cultivate a school-wide climate of well-being


  • Update school website with a web-page dedicated to well-being dimensions and links to available resources
  • Have first floor informational boards on each campus dedicated to wellness resources and topics
  • Collaborate with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and other TAMU resources

Assess the feasibility of offering well-being instruction/training in a standalone elective course and/or embedded longitudinally into targeted courses in a progressive manner


  • Survey student and faculty interest in well-being instruction/training (if sufficient interest, proceed with further tactics)
  •  Identify core elements of well-being for instruction/training and prioritize those most important to our stakeholders
  • Develop specific content(s) for instruction/training
  • Submit the coursework (for an elective, elective track, or a module) for approval
  • Monitor outcomes and track enrollment
