Some highlights include the strategic incorporation of wellness into the ten-year Campus Master Plan; planning for two new recreational facilities; continued changes to the offerings in the on-campus dining facilities to support healthier choices; an increase in programming supporting all seven dimensions of wellness across campus; an expansion of employee wellness initiatives; and a focus on addressing health inequities, including food insecurity and disparate rates of depression in the student population.”
