You are here: American University Campus Life Dean of Students Health and Wellness

Committed to your Health and Wellness

The Office of the Dean Students is dedicated to the development of the whole student. This holistic philosophy extends beyond the classroom. Believing that academic success is more easily achieved when students take responsibility for their own health, we try to provide up-to-date resources corresponding to our wellness model of balance that combines physical, intellectual, spiritual, occupational, social and emotional health.
