Division of Student Life's Well-being Goal

Tech's Division of Student Life (DSL) has created several strategic goals that are in alignment with the NMT 2027 Strategic Plan. Below is that goal:

Theme III: Promote Well-Being

Our goal is to create a culture that recognizes the holistic lives of our students by integrating our “Well-Being Wheel” into all facets of the student experience.
