Create a Campus Ecosystem and Culture of Wellness

Sacramento State recognizes that student, faculty, and staff wellness is imperative to our collective success. We must ensure that basic needs including food, shelter, finances, as well as physical, mental, and spiritual needs are met as foundational to our mission to prepare students for leadership, service, and success. Recent events including the global pandemic and focused attention on social inequities reinforce the need to ensure that students, faculty, and staff are given the support and tools needed to not just survive, but to genuinely thrive. We are committed to creating a Healing University, internally and externally, with a focus on inclusion and outreach.

We aspire to embed wellness throughout the University to create lasting cultural changes with measurable positive outcomes. We will pursue and develop innovative ways to create a culture of wellness. We will actively engage the community at large in accomplishing this goal. We will be a compassionate and effective resource for students, faculty, staff, and the community. We will continuously review policies to support student and mental health and wellness.
