We aspire to provide a holistic and transformative experience for the WKU Community to aid in the development of informed, engaged, and dedicated citizens. 

Our Values

Service – This is at the heart of what we do, striving to provide excellent service that is authentic, courteous, intentional, and professional.

Holistic Well-Being – We strive to provide an avenue for all to develop healthy habits in their daily lifestyles that create an overall balance in the eight dimensions of wellness.  

Student Development – We encourage our students, and provide the tools and welcoming environment to train, develop, and empower them to become informed, engaged, and dedicated citizens.   

Positive Work Environment – We want to create a sense of belonging within our employees that helps them discover that they can be a part of something bigger than themselves, promoting teamwork, mentorship, and excellence while working toward a common goal.  

Fun – Above all, we want this to be our driving force in the things we do as a department. Having fun is a basic human instinct, and because we enjoy what we do, it brings joy to our lives.
