Enriching Campus Wellbeing Initiative


UTSA is committed to the wellbeing of each member of the campus community and recognizes that numerous factors contribute to overall wellness: physical and mental health, diet and nutrition, physical activity, stress management and self-care, social behaviors and more. In alignment with university’s commitment to student success in all forms, the President’s Initiative on Enriching Campus Wellbeing will promote and connect existing health-related services, model best practices, and develop new programming. Though the initiative will focus heavily on mental health at the outset, it will look broadly at eight dimensions of wellbeing — physical, social, spiritual, environmental, financial, occupational, psychological and intellectual — as endorsed by several leading higher education associations. By adopting a comprehensive and holistic approach and initiating a continuing, culturally competent dialogue about health and wellbeing, the university will build a foundation for healthy living for students, faculty and staff both here at UTSA and beyond.
