The Wellbeing Project

The Wellbeing Project is a new campus-wide initiative to support students’ health and wellness during their time at BU. We believe that everyone deserves to feel good and that how students feel matters. Our collective goal – as administrators, faculty, and staff – is to inspire our students to feel fulfilled each day, despite the ups and downs of life on campus.
