Wellness Resource Committee


The Department Wellness Resource Committee (WRC) is a committee of faculty and graduate students. The mission of the WRC is to serve as a department resource to promote psychological, emotional, and physical well-being among department members, with a primary focus on graduate students. Please see below for relevant resource lists.

2. Identify and compile wellness resources available to graduate students, on- and off-campus.
3. Sponsor activities to promote graduate student wellness.
4. Serve as a confidential resource for feedback and advice regarding wellness resources.
5. Recommend wellness promotion activities, resources, and policies to the department.
6. Engage in ongoing evaluation of student needs and committee/department activities, and adjust actions and recommendations accordingly.
