We want to create a substance-free undergraduate residential community and experience based on the theme of wellness. This provides an environment for students to learn and practice holistic approaches to physical, mental, and emotional health: The Well House or “The Well.”  The values of the substance-free community are connection, equity, belonging, authenticity, and vulnerability and humility. Students living at The Well need to commit to live substance free and actively promote an environment based upon the respect and care for others in the community.
