Columbia-JED Campus Objectives

Columbia Live Well | Learn Well

Ensure that emotional well-being is a campus-wide responsibility.

In partnership with the Jed Foundation, Columbia is actively engaging in the implementation and communication of the JED Campus Strategic Plan for Columbia undergraduates to ensure the future success of our wellness support efforts and promote a culture of care and shared responsibility for student well-being. This strategic plan has equipped us to better anticipate and evaluate policies, systems and programming needs, while examining how we deploy both personnel and financial resources to address challenges, coordinate efforts across campus and evaluate effectiveness.
