Campus Well-Being Collective

The Campus Well-Being Collective (CWBC) recognizes that student well-being is impacted by a variety of different dimensions, including: Emotional, Environmental, Financial, Intellectual, Occupational, Physical Social and Spiritual.

The CWBC at Harper College consists of various departments and units across the campus and within the community, and the group meets monthly to discuss and plan current and future Campus programs, events and resources that help support and contribute to student well-being. To create a campus that truly supports the overall well-being of its students, it requires a collective community effort, including multiple departments and units, to come together in order to help make Harper College a better place for students to live, work, learn and play in.

Using the Collective Impact framework and the University of Southern California's Well-Being Collective Framework, some of the goals of the Campus Well-Being Collective include:

  1. To provide holistic wellness programming to better support student success and retention.
  2. To provide cross-campus collaboration, support, and marketing as it relates to student programming.
  3. To help foster a Campus culture and environment for students to thrive in.
  4. To identify gaps and needs as it relates to student well-being.
