Well-Being Model

Caring About the Whole Well-Being of Every Student

Committed to the well-being of every student, Augustana University developed a model integrating the key dimensions of well-being, and highlighting the interdisciplinary connections to success.

There are six dimensions featured within the model including physical, emotional, spiritual, academic, social and financial well-being — all designed to help foster student development and wellness.

The dimensions of the Well-Being Model point students to resources related to developing healthy habits for their body, caring for their emotional and mental health, as well as exploring their faith, meaning and purpose in life. Other dimensions of the model provide students with easier access to information that will help them achieve their goals through academic and career strategies, strengthen their community and sense of belonging through meaningful relationships and contributions, as well as build a solid foundation by understanding and managing their finances.
