Wellness Dimension: Social Programs

Students participate in

Social: Social well being refers to our ability to interact successfully within a community and throughout a variety of cultural contexts while showing respect for yourself and others. It encompasses our interpersonal relationships, social support networks, and community engagement. As a member of a community, we may develop satisfying relationships, a capacity for intimacy, an understanding of self in relation to others, and a sense of belonging. To achieve social well-being, we can acquire the skills to communicate effectively, resolve conflicts, transcend differences, and provide leadership in community. Social well-being is interwoven into other dimensions of well-being through an emphasis on orienting the individual within a community context.
