Membership: selected in consultation with the Student Wellness Steering Committee and the Mental Health and Wellness Committee Chair. Recommend balance of faculty and staff members, at least one staff member from Athletics, and at least one student member.

Description: in consultation with the Student Wellness Steering Committee, the Mental Health and Wellness Committee will engage in population assessment, community building, education, policy development, strategic planning, and reporting around key areas of student mental health, including anxiety, depression, stress, and suicide prevention/postvention.
