Wellness Definition

For every student to enjoy a healthy student experience and pursue ones best self.

Student Wellness provides programs, services, education, & facilities that inspire students to live well,
connect, and form lifelong wellness behaviors that lead to a healthier and happier life.

Wellness is "the balanced development of the total person..." (BYU Mission Statement), and is holistically comprised of six dimensions, Spiritual, Physical, Intellectual, Financial, Emotional, and Social.


Discipleship - We strive to follow the Savior’s example, embody His attributes, show compassion, and
pursue excellence through inspired assessment and individual responsibility.

Student Focus - We empower student autonomy and advocate for their efforts to develop and pursue
their best selves. Collaborating across campus, we enhance our collective efforts to provide robust
service and unwavering support to our students.

Belonging - We invite contributions from, respect the views of, seek to create safe environments for,
and support students and employees from all backgrounds, cultures, disabilities, ethnicities, life
experiences and perspectives.


Student Wellness enhances the student experience through six operational areas: Facilities Services, Intramural Sports, Wellness Programs, Extramural Sports, Outdoors Unlimited, and SWELL Courses. Each serves a purpose in fulfilling the vision “For every student to pursue their best self and enjoy a healthy student experience”
