Engagement Well-Being Logo

Engagement (social) Well-Being encompasses advocacy and service to others which allows us to surround ourselves with a positive support network.

  • Advocacy: Supporting or advancing a cause for the betterment of disadvantaged or underrepresented groups, society, or the earth in general. Promoting awareness or education regarding an issue, and donating your time, energy, or resources to help organize a movement or create change are all aspects of advocating.

  • Service: To volunteer, “to choose to act in recognition of a need, with an attitude of social responsibility and  without concern for monetary profit, going beyond one's basic obligations”.  Assisting others without expecting any reward or gain; being involved in projects that serve others or contribute for the betterment of the larger community. 

  • Support Network: Developing and maintaining healthy friendships and creating a social network. Stay connected with others for motivation, encouragement, to cheer on one another, and to talk about ways to overcome challenges. Embodying the “love where you live” sentiment by building a positive, fun community.

  • Campus Involvement: Being involved with a student organization or club allowing students to learn how to work as a team, time-management skills, gain leadership skills and build friendships. Students build a network with other club members, or alumni, who share similar interests or can provide mentorship(s).
