Creating a campus culture of wellness requires Minnesota State Mankato to develop an institutional-wide plan that will result in an all-encompassing wellness program for all members of our campus community. Positive health and wellness are conducive to effective teaching and learning.
MSU recognizes the relationship between physical, mental, social, intellectual, and spiritual well being and the vital role health, mental health, recreation and other programs and services play in assisting members of our campus community in achieving optimal wellness.
For students, optimal wellness will increase retention, decreases absenteeism, and positively impact academic and personal success.
For faculty and staff maintaining optimal health and wellness reduces illness and optimizes personal and professional performance.
Given the important and well documented linkages between health and success, MSU seeks to identify deliberate ways to assist the University community in optimizing health and wellness in an effort to enhance intellectual proficiency, job performance, and overall individual well being.
