Raise Up GW

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.

How Do You Raise Up?

We want to hear how you are maintaining your well-being! Tell us your well-being story to be featured on our website.

"Back home, my mom and I would garden a lot [and walk] on the beach while picking up and properly disposing of trash. [I also like] visiting the Dupont Farmers Market when it's around. [and] having different plants around my room to brighten my day - my favorite right now being Terry the Terrarium (yes, I named my terrarium haha)."
