Health and Well-being

Well-being is an ongoing process and a life-long journey, not a one-time event. Northwestern encourages and supports our students in taking action on all eight interconnected dimensions of wellness in order to build everyday habits, which improve quality of life. It may also help individuals live longer, manage current health conditions, and support recovery from illness, injury, and addiction.
