The Well-being Collective

Supporting the well-being of our people, places and planet

The University of Michigan Well-being Collective is an interdisciplinary group of students, staff, and faculty who have been brought together from across campus to support and implement our commitment to improving the well-being of our people, places and planet.

The University of Michigan announced the adoption of the Okanagan Charter and the expansion of the Health and Well-being Collective Impact Infrastructure. This exciting strategic initiative is part of an expansive list of recommendations approved in the Student Mental Health Innovative Approaches Review Committee report.

We aspire to make U-M a health-promoting university and global leader in championing the well-being of students, faculty, staff and community. We’re developing a holistic, campuswide approach, recognizing diversity of identity and prioritizing resilience and sustainability as central to the health and well-being of the U-M community. 

We understand that mental health and well-being are not simply matters of individual experience, but a state connected to one’s environment, as well as social and policy factors. This effort cannot be accomplished by a single unit or department alone. It must be something we create collectively as a community, with everyone contributing to making U-M a better place to live, work and learn.
