At Rice, Our Wellbeing Matters. Engaging in our personal care and supporting each other is a way of life on our campus. College or graduate school presents unique challenges for many of us. We often encounter concerns that can impact our personal wellness. The Wellbeing Project is an initiative to guide us through these concerns. No really, use this one. 

At Rice, We Care About Each Other. We want to nourish and support growth, creating deep and strong roots in our community. There are many departments on campus that help us resolve difficulties and provide advice as we make decisions that affect our wellbeing.

Students asked for additional support.  During many recent conversations with student leaders across campus, students told us that wellbeing efforts on our campus need to emphasize positive mental health.  We heard that input and The Wellbeing Project is now underway to meet those needs.

The Project is student led and staff supported.  The Rice Health Advisors (RHAs) and Active Minds, both student-let groups, are partnering with the Student Development & Retention Office and the Wellness Center to coordinate The Project.

Your Contribution to Wellbeing Matters. We want you to get involved! This initiative will evolve over time to meet the changing needs of our campus community.

 The Wellbeing Project offers interactive and educational group WORKSHOPS that aim to: 

  • boost your ability to manage daily stress 
  • encourage you to reflect on your goals and priorities 
  • teach you to practice healthy emotional self-care 
  • empower you to ask for help early
