UChicago takes a holistic approach to wellness by focusing on seven key Facets of Wellness. Wellness is much more than physical health, exercise, or nutrition. It is the full integration of states of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. The model used by our campus includes emotional, environmental, financial, intellectual, physical, social, and spiritual wellness. Each of these seven Facets of Wellness promote balance in our lives. See below to learn more about each.
