A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome that outlines how credit criteria are met and any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation:

After a year-long engagement with the JED Foundation, Barnard launched Feel Well, Do Well @ Barnard, a campus-wide initiative that integrates the core principle of your wellness, your way to set the gold standard of what health and wellness can look like on a 21st century college campus. This initiative provides opportunities for all members of the community to participate with a core belief that all members of the campus community are responsible for the health and wellbeing of our students and only healthy individuals can provide the support necessary to empower our students to thrive. Linking all areas of health, promoting healthiness in all areas, and incorporation all members of the community, faculty, staff, and students is a novel and innovative approach to wellbeing. Several Feel Well, Do Well initiatives are offered in partnership with the Sustainability Office, the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and Health Services. Our philosophy is that care for the individual, care for the community, and care for the planet are intimately linked and synergistic.

Barnard receive a JED Campus “seal of approval,” acknowledging our commitment to taking students’ mental and emotional wellness seriously. Feel Well, Do Well takes this commitment to the next level by including Faculty and Staff in that commitment.
