Mission Statement​

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.​
