Wellness at Western
WMU is redefining success as we expand what it means to be "smart" in an ever-changing world. Our goal is to prepare students for a life well-lived by helping them to pursue, thrive and prosper. This holistic approach starts with the skills and abilities you don't see on paper: mental well-being, grit and purpose. That's why Western is launching new wellness tools to help students explore their strengths and areas for growth.
