Wellbeing at Cal Poly

Campus Wellbeing at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo

At Campus Wellbeing our mission is to cultivate a culture of health and wellbeing on our campus for students, staff and faculty to live and be well. We care about our whole community. Our goal is to offer education, programming and opportunities for individuals to develop their skills and abilities to achieve wellbeing. 

Wellbeing connects the different life elements– Social, Community, Career, Financial, Physical, & Emotional Wellbeing – to achieve and maintain life balance, the ability to be resilient and achieve our full potential. Through life balance, we are better able to manage the different aspects of our life through a holistic approach, which will help us reach personal and professional success.

At the individual level, having basic needs met in each element of wellbeing creates an opportunity for one to grow, flourish and thrive personally and professionally. At the community level, having individuals who are happy and healthy in their lives and professions, contributes to the greater good of our communities.

What is Wellbeing?



noun: wellbeing

: the state of being happy, healthy, or prosperous.

The Cal Poly Mindfulness Project

Established in 2016, the Cal Poly Mindfulness Project started with a few mindful individuals who collectively came together to bring mindfulness to the Cal Poly campus. Little did they know, their dreams would become reality starting a stampede of mindful mustangs. 

The Headspace Research Project:

Employee and Organization Development and Student Affairs are partnering in a research study that explores the effects of using the Headspace Mindfulness app. The Cal Poly Mindfulness Project is recruiting volunteers to participate in a five week study, which entails taking two surveys and a commitment to use the Headspace app for a minimum of 10 minutes a day over the five-week period. Participants will receive complimentary use of the Headspace app for 4 months.
