Barnes Center at The Arch Dimensions of Wellness

Flipping the status quo, the Barnes Center Dimensions of Wellness open opportunities to not only “talk with” but places students in the driver’s seat of their unique holistic health and wellness journeys.

Similar to a personalized guiding compass, the Barnes Center Wellness Wheel is a visual representation of holistic wellness through the eight Dimensions of Wellness. All of which host a core of diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility (DEIA). The Barnes Center at The Arch Wellness Philosophy webpage shares descriptions, examples, available Syracuse University resources and experiences for each Dimension of Wellness.
