Our vision is to become nationally recognized for the integration and advancement of mindfulness and well-being in higher education. 


We believe that regardless of discipline or position, we all have the opportunity to be teachers and learners of well-being. UW-Superior’s commitment to wellbeing encourages all members of our campus and local community to learn what it means to be mindful, to improve relationships, to manage stress and adversity, to develop a range of interests and strengths, and to establish a sense of meaning and purpose in their lives and careers.
We believe education has a dual purpose: building intellectual growth and fostering the development of well-being. This provides individuals with the knowledge and skills for career preparation along with the abilities to live authentically with greater meaning and purpose. UW-Superior has made a deliberate commitment to advancing mindfulness and well-being as a priority for all students, faculty, and staff to improve campus climate, reduce mental health concerns, and improve achievement and retention efforts.
