The Wellness Center is committed to fostering the personal growth and development of all UIC students. We seek to expose them to knowledge, skills, and experiences that inform and guide their ability to make healthier choices. We believe that connecting students to pertinent and timely lifestyle information promotes their academic, personal and professional success. By adhering to the Eight Dimensions of Wellness we engage and support the Whole student. Subsequently we offer a holistic range of services, resources, referrals and programs that wrap around the emotional, environmental, intellectual, occupational, physical, sexual, social, and spiritual needs of the students.
