Welcome to #YourWellnessFund
Prior to the ratification of the Wellness Initiative Fee, the services for health and wellness at UC Berkeley were not able to properly serve the entire student body. In the last 17 years, enrollment has expanded over 20% and these services were unable to scale accordingly.
In 2015, the student body voted to pass the Wellness Initiative Fee, allowing the creation and continuation of wellness programming at UC Berkeley. The Wellness Initiative Fee, since then renamed the Wellness Fund, will provide new fee revenue that will be used exclusively to support wellness services and programming for students, as well as renovations, furnishings, and alterations to existing spaces required to support these new wellness programs.
Wellness, health, and recreation services are in dire need of improvement at UC Berkeley, which lacks new, innovative mind-body services that students want. The Wellness Fund aims to address the concerning rise of mental health complications on campus and provide new support for minority student groups (ie. students of color, LGBTQIA students, veterans, student parents, international students, students with disabilities, and other student populations face unique wellness challenges that require additional support not currently available to them).
The Wellness Fund Request for Proposals for the 2017-2018 cycle has now closed. The next funding cycle will open again Fall 2018.
