About Student Wellbeing

Student wellbeing is integral to academic success, student development, and life satisfaction. We, in Student Affairs, are committed to building relationships with our students such that together we generate optimal conditions for their wellbeing.

How We Approach Wellbeing


One way in which UCSB approaches wellbeing on campus is through the Socio-Ecological Model where look at wellbeing through 4 levels:

  • Individual Efforts like educating yourself on relevant health topics
  • Interpersonal Relationships that provide social support 
  • Community Resources that provide the settings that promote wellbeing
  • Social Level Systems such as policies that improve health equity
