About Student Wellbeing
Some students are thriving, some are striving, and others are barely surviving. Today’s students work incredibly hard, and feel pressure to work even harder. And when they’re not working, there are stressors that demand a different kind of work.
But here’s the thing: we know that when students feel better, they perform better. To perform at full potential, students need to be able to occasionally step back, see the big picture, and sometimes try doing things differently.
Student Wellbeing is a campus-wide initiative to support students’ health and wellbeing 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.
Our mission is to foster the holistic wellbeing of our students by providing opportunities and experiences that enhance all dimensions of wellness, while equipping students with the tools to thrive as individuals and community members. Through a collaborative and shared approach to programming and resources, we inspire our students to succeed at BU and beyond.
We’re starting a conversation about how to find balance and fulfillment and enjoy the rich, memorable experiences of being a student. Throughout the year, Student Wellbeing hosts and co-sponsors programs and events where students can join with others to pause, recharge, and learn tools to help them thrive.
