Founded in 2014 to serve the Danforth Campus, our membership includes faculty, staff, graduate/professional, and undergraduate students.
“Stay Well and Do Well at WashU,” a video created by the campus-wide Health and Wellness Committee in 2018
The Health and Wellness Committee utilizes and coordinates university-wide resources that encourage inclusive care and dialogue, focusing on programming and outreach efforts that support and enhance the long-term emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual health of Washington University community members.
We envision a university that recognizes health and wellness as an integral part of success and fosters a safe environment that supports the personal, academic, and social well-being of all university members.
We meet once a month during the academic year. Each subcommittee meets on its own at least once a month.
Subcommittees identify one or two key areas/issues of focus each year. Explore the links below to see some of the important initiatives that have been accomplished by this committee.
Alcohol and Other Drugs
Graduate and Professional Student Affairs
Universal graduate orientation programming on health and wellness
