The wellness division of the St. Ambrose Office of Wellness and Recreation promotes healthy lifestyle choices through information, resources, and events for students, faculty and staff. 

The six dimensions of wellness (social, intellectual, emotional, physical, environmental, and spiritual) are integrated to create a well-rounded program to encourage individuals to grow and achieve their full potential.

Wellness is about balance. Because all of the dimensions of wellness are equally important, no single dimension should outweigh another. A truly well individual is confident in saying that he or she feels that each of the dimensions of wellness are being fulfilled.

For everyone, wellness is a lifelong journey. The resources on this website can provide you with the information and guidance you need to feel comfortable in your own body and environment.
