This integrated wellness program encompasses the 7 dimensions of wellness: social, intellectual, emotional, spiritual, physical, environmental, and financial.
Integrated Wellness Center
Westminster University is committed to empowering students to lead full and healthy lives of learning, accomplishment, and service. In the new L. S. Skaggs Integrated Wellness Center, students will access resources and services that support learning and healthy living through their physical, emotional, intellectual, financial, social, spiritual, and environmental wellness. The center will bring together a network of offices and services united in ensuring student wellness:
- Student Health Services
- Mental Health Counseling Center
- Office for Global Peace and Spirituality
- Center for Financial Wellness
The center will add space to accommodate classes and programming open to community members. A teaching and demonstration kitchen, featuring multiple cooktops and stations, will create opportunities for nutritional education and instruction. The building will wrap around an inner courtyard with space for relaxation, meditation, gardening, and other mindfulness activities.
The L. S. Skaggs Integrated Wellness Center will be an approximately 11,000 sq. ft., 2-story facility located at the southeast corner of campus, replacing 3 university-owned houses. The building will be constructed to the highest standards of sustainability, focused on a net-zero approach. Construction, equipping, and related costs, including an endowment for the facility's ongoing maintenance and upkeep, are estimated to come to $9.1 million.
