The mission of WELLWVU is to foster the complete well-being of WVU students through education, promotion and related programs.

WELLWVU’s Office of Wellness and Health Promotion was formed in July 2009 with the purpose of delivering comprehensive wellness education to all WVU students. We aim to educate and empower students to live healthy, happy and productive lives. We support the mission of West Virginia University by advocating for policies on campus and in our community that support healthy living, and work to shift the culture at West Virginia University to one of health and well-being.

Our work is based on the latest in prevention research and we are committed to best practices in health education and evaluation. We apply a socioecological approach to our practice as individual health and societal structures are inextricably connected. We provide programs and services that are theory-based, evidence-driven, innovative, and student-centered.
