A New Wellness Strategy: Empowering Denison Students to Develop the Habits and Skills to Manage Their Well-Being

College students today report experiencing anxiety, depression, and stress at increased levels. Over the last year alone, Denison has made great strides in student wellness. Highlights include:

  • Developing a campus-wide strategic plan for wellness,
  • Launching a partnership with the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center, and
  • Opening the stunning Ann & Thomas Hoaglin Wellness Center

These all focus on helping students develop the habits and skills to manage their well-being. Join us for a conversation about how Denison reframed its approach to wellness in response to the needs of today’s college students. Hear about the fantastic work taking place across campus in support of wellness and engage in conversation about the vision and future direction of student wellness at Denison.
