Interassociation Wellbeing Definition
The Interassociation Wellbeing Definition is one outcome of the “Health and Wellbeing in Higher Education: A Commitment to Student Success.” In our pursuit to co-create cultures of integrated well-being on campuses worldwide, we want to ensure we are building from a shared understanding and foundation. Since there was not an existing definition that defined wellbeing, especially as it applies to higher education, the members of our organizations asked that one be created. This definition, and its supplementary material, is meant to be foundational; we hope a shared understanding can be a steppingstone to systemic change.

Ask the Black Girl: A conversation spanning wellbeing to improved programming for Black students
Stigma, inequality, and injustices surrounding human rights persist in our culture today. Sadly, the color of a person’s skin plays a significant role in how people are perceived, respected, and handled. We know that racism, both deliberate and unintentional, affects the health and wellbeing of individuals and groups; so, as campus recreations professionals, we must consider how we can each contribute to a culture where all people feel included. Join a conversation between Michele Martin, a white woman working at a PWI, and Chavonne Shorter, a Black woman who previously worked at an HBCU. Listen to their dialogue exchange to hear how they have been able to learn from one another and how their conversation can inform the development of successful programming for people of color on a PWI campus.
