How Does the Program Work?

How it Started

Funded by the J. Clifford Todd, Professor in Longevity & Healthful Living Fund, the Mission of the WellU® program is to unify student health promotion efforts at WKU. WellU® also fosters collaborative efforts within and between WKU divisions that promote healthy lifestyle behaviors among WKU students that contribute to student success.

What is WellU®?

WellU® is a program that is designed to help all students connect with programs and services that promote healthy habits and success in the classroom and life in general.

Why Participate?

Did you know that health and wellness related issues are among the most common barriers to student success in higher education?  WKU provides a variety of health and wellness related programs and services designed to help students succeed in school and life!
Given the number and variety of health & wellness related programs, and services on campus the WellU® student wellness program was developed to promote all these programs, and services on one site.  Additionally, thanks to the J Clifford Todd Professorship in Longevity and Healthful Living Fund, and the College Heights Foundation, WellU® is able to provide over $15,000 in scholarships and prizes to students who participate in this free program every year!
