Dimensions of Wellness A Space for Self-Nurturing

Dimensions of Wellness

At North Carolina A&T State University, wellness is not merely alleviating the body of disease or infirmity, it is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being.

Our Commitment

We are motivated to help our university community interested in progressing towards their personal goals/best. We aspire to engage our students in a lifelong process to understand and participate in their own healthcare and wellness plans. Therefore, our challenge is to educate our students, faculty, and staff on physical, mental, and social well-being matters and to assist them in their quest for wellness or health maintenance and illness prevention. We offer wellness events throughout the year to help you create a space of self-nurturing.
