Well-being, Inclusion, and Diversity

Well-being is a top priority for our School and therefore we strive to create a healthy campus climate by reinforcing well-being concepts that promote a vibrant climate for diversity, equity, and inclusion. Cultivating a healthy campus climate means that students and employees of the School of Pharmacy feel that they are able to bring their whole selves to work and school where they are encouraged to achieve a state of well-being across multiple dimensions of wellness.


The goal of this webpage is to increase the visibility of available well-being resources for faculty, staff and students. 

A holistic concept of wellness reinforces all dimensions of well-being: emotional, environmental, financial, intellectual, occupational, physical, social, and spiritual aspects of our lives.
