To be well at the George Washington University is to honor the dynamic process of change and growth that involves building resilience, persistence, and positivity in the face of challenges. Raise Up GW is our initiative dedicated to helping students engage in a comprehensive well-being experience across campus. We empower our students to actively engage in well-being activities that are supportive of holistic lifestyles. Through this initiative, students will gain an understanding of resources and learn how to help others in need. For more information, contact the Raise Up GW Committee.
Dimensions of Well-being
We are dedicated to helping you prioritize your well-being. As you browse through these dimensions of well-being, you will have the ability to identify campus services and online resources to aid you in finding a healthy balance.
"After having been online for a year, I have loved getting together with study groups and meeting with my professors in person! I've been meeting so many like-minded, passionate students. This semester, a professor offered to read a book about my interests, and we have been discussing it in office hours. I feel like I have built a community out of a classroom."
Check out the Capital Peers Podcast to learn about well-being topics like nutrition and body image, sexual health and healthy relationships, stress management and emotional well-being, social well-being and connectedness, and more.
