A brief description of the institution’s wellness and/or employee assistance program(s):

Denison has a robust student wellness program and Wellness is one of five key areas of the college's current strategic plan. That plan included the construction of a new Ann & Thomas Hoaglin Wellness center on campus which was completed in Summer 2022.

Denison University encourages students to lead a holistic lifestyle through the “Be Well to Do Well” program. In this program, each of the 5 dimensions of wellness (Personal, Community, Social, Financial and Intellectual) forms a piece of a lifestyle. All areas of wellness interact continuously, influencing and being influenced by each other. Making a conscious change in one area of wellness will directly affect other areas. “Be Well to Do Well” offers continuity and integration of care providing students with the services, health education, and support needed to successfully navigate the management of their well-being.
