We are a resilient, healthy community committed to the health and wellbeing of each of our faculty, staff, and students. We understand the connection between self-care and our responsibility to care for the whole. For the sake of the whole community we participate in wellness activities that sustain us on a physical, mental, and emotional level to carry out the mission and vision of UMBC. From this focus on wellness, we strengthen our community of caring and support, which serves as a model for higher education and the larger world.
If you nurture your mind, body, and spirit, your time will expand. You will gain a new perspective that will allow you to accomplish much more.
Brian Koslow, writer
We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.
Herman Melville, writer and poet
Movement is a medicine for creating change in a person's physical, emotional, and mental states.
Carol Welch, writer
To keep the body in good health is a duty. Otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.
