Well @ Wellesley, Wellness your way with trees in background

Our Mission

In the Office of Student Wellness (OSW), we view wellness as a state of being that is impacted by a confluence of factors. Our work in OSW is informed by the 8 dimensions of wellness: physical, social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, environmental, occupational, and financial. Our mission is to address the holistic aspects of wellness and provide support to:


  • all students where they are in their wellness journey. 

  • wellness your way, in recognition that wellness is different for different people. 

  • the diversity of experiences.


  • across differences by not defining wellness for students, but rather encouraging students to explore their own unique brand of wellness and to define their own journey.

  • students with resources and tools, making wellness accessible and equitable to all students in our community.

  • the Wellesley College community at large, to foster wellness at Wellesley.


  • self reflection and awareness of the individual’s needs, and accessing resources.

  • students through education to incorporate a balanced approach to healthy behaviors. 

  • a lifelong journey of wellness.
