About

Mission Statement

We put health first. We promote a campus environment that supports the ability to thrive physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially. We educate and advocate for optimal health, from personal wellness improvement to institutional and policy change.

We make health visible. We make connections between health and institutional structures and bring them to light. We lead the campus toward changes that create and maintain a healthy campus community.

Massage Chairs

We offer free massage chairs to encourage people to take a break during their busy days.

On average, 1,200 students, staff and faculty take advantage of the massage chairs each semester.

#OurHouse

We want less drama and problems related to alcohol.

We need to publicly advocate for a party culture that is world class. We want to make it obvious to any student attending a Berkeley party that we keep it social - not slurred - and that health and safety are top priority if problems arise.
