Brown embraces an integrated, innovative approach to fostering the health and well-being of every student.
Faculty and staff at Brown recognize that physical, mental and emotional health and well-being are essential to the ability of every student — undergraduate, graduate and medical — to take full advantage of the academic opportunities on campus. The University offers a wide range of dedicated services in support of health and wellness.
Health Services provides holistic care that is respectful of students' personal, cultural and social identities. Health professionals offer visits for urgent and routine care, 24/7 nursing advice, and on-site lab, pharmacy and X-ray services.
Through health campaigns, workshops, peer education and individual appointments, BWell provides health promotion services to support individual and community well-being and a healthy learning environment.
Brown President Christina Paxson emphasized the need for collaboration in a conversation with fellow Rhode Island college and university presidents about approaches to meeting students’ mental health needs.
With generous support from the family of Duncan MacMillan and from Barry Sternlicht and Mimi Reichert Sternlicht, and with architect selection underway, the University’s vision for an integrated, state-of-the-art health and wellness center and residence hall is on a path toward realization.
