CALS Wellness Committee

The CALS Wellness Committee was launched in 2015 with the vision of a culture and environment of wellness in CALS. Our mission is to support opportunities that promote the health and well-being of the CALS community. We work in partnership with UWell, a campus-wide effort committed to benefiting and promoting wellness on campus. Our approach to wellness is holistic, and we strive to promote activities and events on campus that meet the 7 dimensions of wellness.

Have a question, suggestion or want to join the initiative? Get in touch with us at wellness@cals.wisc.edu.
