The well-being of the campus community flourishes in many ways and in all places. Wellness in the Classroom was implemented in 1994 when The Alcohol, Tobacco and Violence Prevention Curriculum Infusion Project was established at Illinois State University through a federal grant in response to growing concern over student alcohol and drug abuse.
Currently Wellness in the Classroom reaches beyond this scope through committed colleagues who intentionally integrate happiness, sustainability, gender based and sexual violence, and wellness content into regularly offered academic classes. Resources around creating well-being in your classroom can be found here The Okanagan Charter, a call to action for health promoting universities.
Faculty and staff seeking more information about the health data collected at Illinois State or who are interested to know how to better discuss wellness related issues with students are welcome to contact Health Promotion and Wellness at (309) 438-9355.
