The Wellness Resource Center (WRC) uses a comprehensive, campus wide, year-long wellness approach that begins during summer orientation and continues every month throughout the year. Each year, over 200 student programs are delivered in a wide variety of locations including academic classrooms and residence halls. In addition, various publications, education posters, displays, and major campus events are used to promote wellness issues. The WRC plans on-going activities and events that support wellness as it relates to issues such as fitness and nutrition, stress-reduction, alcohol and drug abuse, tobacco, problem gambling, healthy decision making off-campus, promoting positive fan behavior at athletic events, and suicide prevention.
Founded by Kim Dude in 1990, the Wellness Resource Center is dedicated to creating environments that support healthy decision making at the University of Missouri, in Columbia, and in the greater Missouri Community.
The Wellness Resource Center is certified as a Targeted Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Program by the Missouri Department of Mental Health, Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse.
