The role of the Wellness Council is to incorporate awareness of the value of health and wellness to intellectual and creative activity and overall institutional and community life. The council serves as a resource for members of the campus community regarding overall wellness issue, including personal nutrition, exercise and stress management, as as well as an advisor on policies relating to tobacco, alcohol, and other substances. 

The council is composed of 11 appointed members to be appointed by the Provost, including two from Health and Counseling, one from the College of Arts and Sciences, one from the College of Education, two from Student Affairs, one from Accreditation, Accountability, and Academic Services; one from Human Resources, one from 

Residence Life, and two students--one a sophomore or junior and one a junior or senior to be appointed by the chair of the Council of Student Leaders. 

The members will serve two-year staggered terms, one of whom is appointed chair with a vote only in case of a tie.
