Health and Wellness Programs

These programs will aim to promote and enhance students’ quality of life and academic success by assisting them in becoming healthy, confident, and resilient individuals. Together with UChicago Health Promotion & Wellness, programs, services, and resources are available that create a campus culture in which students can make informed and proactive decisions about their personal and community health. Facets of the wellness program include: social, emotional, environmental, intellectual, spiritual, physical, and financial.
