Holistic wellness is integral to student learning and success. Student wellness includes physical well-being, mental health concerns, housing and food, and financial wellness and budgeting.
What are we doing about it?
The College of Education is conducting research on:
- Peer victimization and teaching practices
- The role cyberbullying has on youth and learning and socialization
- Disrupting bullying behaviors
- School-wide health promotion to target physical and psychological symptoms
- Screening and treatment for trauma exposure and traumatic stress symptoms
- Developing and testing interventions that can be implemented in school settings or specialty clinics to improve health behaviors, student engagement, mental health, and relationships
- Positive psychology frameworks that examine risk and protective factors and promote resiliency
