What We Do

Health and Wellness can have a positive impact on academic success.  Providing students access to education and training, community resources, and supports in areas that account for the "whole student" can significantly reduce barriers to completion and barriers that take focus away from their education. 

"We have to think about the conditions that impact learning." - Dr. Sara Goldrick-Rab
