Health and Wellness improves student access to services

This fall at UND, Health and Wellness services available to students are better and easier to find than ever. For students, accessing any one of the services of the Health and Wellness Unit (Student Health, Peer Education, Wellness Center, Health and Wellness Resource Office) will open doors to a broad spectrum of health and wellness promotion services and programs.

The focus of the Health and Wellness Unit is to empower, motivate and support students to make informed decisions by providing them with accessible, accurate information and compassionate services that foster personal health and community wellness. This strategy will support student learning and enable students to perform at optimum levels to achieve their academic and personal goals.

Faculty and staff members can let students know that they will find the gateway to health and wellness programs and services at any of the following locations:
