The Wellness Center provides accurate and relevant health and wellness information, educational programs, and knowledge and skill-building activities to the UIC community to encourage students, staff, and faculty to make healthy choices that integrate knowledge and understanding with their own personal values and a sense of community responsibility.
The Mission of the Wellness Center is to support student
learning, academic success and retention by providing wellness services
that promote healthy attitudes and behaviors, empower students to make informed
choices, and enhance holistic wellbeing.
Wellness is more than the absence of illness. Wellness
is a dynamic process that encompasses 8 dimensions; each important for overall
wellness. The Center philosophy is to address wellness holistically, embracing
these 8 dimensions of well-being.
The eight dimensions of wellness are: intellectual, social, spiritual, occupational, physical, sexual, environmental, and emotional and the interaction among them.
