Xavier's Wellness program promotes
the University's mission of education, personal growth
and self-understanding within the Jesuit tradition. Academic development
is supported and enhanced within a holistic (spirit, mind, body)
approach to well-being.
- a state above and
beyond the absence of illness.
- comprised of seven
dimensions: spiritual, intellectual, physical, financial,
social, emotional, and occupational.

- a process of achieving
your highest potential for well-being.

relaxation, humor, recreation, stress management),
a healthy body (exercise, nutrition, rest, illness and injury prevention), and a healthy
environment (community involvement, safety and security,
