    Our Peer Programs
    • The Well's peer programs raise awareness and educate UCR students about a variety of health topics, provide opportunities for leadership and professional development, and foster connections between students on campus.   
    Our Mission
    • The Well promotes healthy minds, bodies, and communities through student-centered health education, access to resources, peer engagement, and collaboration, and strives to contribute to  a safe, supportive, and connected campus environment.
