Center for Student Wellness

Center for Student Wellness recognizes that life at CUIMC (and outside of it) can be incredibly rewarding and demanding. CSW aims to create an environment that promotes student fulfillment and growth, both personally and academically. Through free, confidential Wellness Appointments and our Wellness Works! Health Promotion programs, we offer guidance for navigating the challenges of graduate school life.

Our Mission

Center for Student Wellness (CSW) creates innovative research-based and student-centered opportunities that facilitate the personal and professional development of CUIMC students. In support of CUIMC’s academic, research, and service mission, CSW employs a social ecological framework to carry out our comprehensive approach which focuses on four major initiatives (programs and services, environmental strategies, research and data collection, and teaching, training, mentoring).

Our Strategies

  • Employ a broad based effort that spans across all schools at CUIMC and the entire University.
  • Apply a humanistic approach that promotes respect, empathy, integrity, self-awareness, and compassion.
  • Offer low barrier access to services and resources for all CUIMC students.
  • Share our expertise through teaching and training others.
  • Conduct research to identify strengths and discover opportunities to address environmental and individual concerns.


Founded on the belief that CUIMC students needed the resources, tools, and guidance to navigate the challenges of graduate school life, CSW evolved from a proposal from the students themselves. CSW opened its doors in 50 Haven Ave. in the summer of 2002 and is now located in Tower 2, along with the rest of SHS.

Our Values:  We respect confidentiality; protect student voices; believe that meaningful change occurs at both individual and systemic levels; encourage help-seeking; and support balanced living.
