Themed Areas

Our model revolves around five major theme areas:

  • Build Well: Enhances health and wellbeing through sustainable, usable environments in which to learn, work, and live. 
  • Eat Well: Promotes improved access to healthy, sustainable, culturally appropriate foods and positive eating choices among all students. 
  • Mind Well: Champions activities, strategies, and events that enhance and promote social connectedness, metal health, and wellbeing. 
  • Move Well: Informs and encourages students to adopt personally relevant, life-long movement practices and habits that enhance health and wellbeing.
  • Spend Well: Prioritizes positive financial attitudes and behaviors through engagement and education.

Prior to working as the BuildWell graduate assistant, I thought of health and wellbeing as being physically and mentally healthy. Since working with Buildwell, I have realized the importance of not only taking care of my physical and mental health, but also being mindful of what I put into my body, and the effects that financial stress and my environment play in my overall health.
