Departmental Mission and Values

The office of Recreation and Wellness provides opportunities for St. Edward’s University to enhance our holistic well-being. We help students, faculty, and staff thrive in a safe, informed, and inclusive community. Through participation in our programs, our campus will cultivate an appreciation for healthy lifestyles, meaningful relationships, leadership development, and a positive lifelong attitude toward holistic well-being.


Wellness is a lifelong pursuit that allows you to thrive in all areas of your life. At St. Edward’s, our LiveWellSEU initiative is our commitment to supporting every Hilltopper’s wellness journey in ways that nurture the mind, body and spirit, and help us live our best life.

8 Dimensions of Well-being

On the hilltop, you have access to resources, services and programs that support all dimensions of your wellbeing. Below, let’s take a look at each dimension and explore how you can learn, grow and live well in every aspect of your life.
