CWU Creates New Health and Wellness Unit

To ensure that the well-being of our students is paramount in everything we do, Central Washington University is taking the step of elevating campus health and wellness programs.  This reorganization within Student Success and under the Dean of Student Success will result in a new unit consisting of the CWU Student Medical and Counseling Clinic, the Wellness Center, and the Department of Recreation that will report to an Associate Dean of Health and Wellness.  This new position is funded from vacancies and does not require the commitment of additional resources.  The university will conduct a national search for the new position, which is expected to be filled in the fall.

Making health and wellness a higher priority for the institution not only establishes a foundation of student excellence, but also recognizes the increasingly important role health and wellness play in our students’ lives. By reorganizing health and wellness programs into a single unit with greater visibility, CWU places new and greater emphasis on these areas and makes our health and wellness programs more accessible to our students.
