Wellness Institute

Sponsored by the Mueller Center & Rensselaer Union, The Wellness Institute is a program that encourages and promotes a healthy lifestyle, both body and mind, as a valuable life skill to the Rensselaer community. The program is designed to be a campus-wide, collaborative effort promoting existing and new health and wellness initiatives. It is our hope that you will find us to be a campus resource for health and wellness information, and a support system to enhance your educational and life goals.
