Student Wellness

Educating and Empowering

The mission of Student Wellness Services at Northern Kentucky University stems from the vision, mission, and goals outlined by the Division of Student Affairs. 

In an effort to build character, confidence, competence and community, Student Wellness Services educates and empowers students to make informed choices about:

  • general health issues
  • substance use through educational programming
  • collaborative partnerships for campus and community outreach
  • planned campus-wide events
8 Dimensions of Wellness

Student Wellness Services views health from a holistic and positive perspective. Our programs and services are designed to increase students’ awareness of wellness in the physical, emotional, spiritual, and other important areas of life, and teach them strategies for making choices that improve their overall wellbeing.   Programs and services are regularly offered that provide guidance and support for increased self-care and personal growth.
