At Moritz College of Law, we prioritize the well-being of our students. That's why we've established the Student Wellness Advisory Group, a dedicated team of students and staff committed to enhancing the campus experience. 

Comprising passionate and caring individuals, this group acts as a guiding light for student wellness initiatives. Their mission is to foster a supportive environment where physical, mental, and emotional well-being are at the forefront of Law school life. The Student Wellness Advisory Group meets once or twice per month to collaborates with staff and fellow students to identify and address the unique challenges and opportunities for wellness within the College. 

From organizing stress-relief events to promoting healthy habits and mental health awareness, they are champions of a healthier, more balanced college journey. By fostering a culture of support and understanding, this group is making sure that every student's well-being is a top priority.

The StrengthsQuest assessment evaluates an individual’s natural patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving, revealing their 34 themes of talent. By leveraging the themes of talent toward the top of a person’s sequence, one can enhance both career performance and their personal life. Students are introduced to StrenghsQuest via a workshop to educate students on the meaning of the signature themes and the four domains (executing, influencing, relationship building, and strategic thinking). Through interactive exercises and questions, each participant will explore their top 5 themes and how they can leverage and develop them as a student and practicing lawyer, and how they can use them to set and achieve career goals. Afterwards, students can meet and engage with staff in one-on-one individualized goal setting and coaching. 


Coming Soon

Group therapy is a natural extension of the way we live our daily lives and provides a venue for learning things about yourself and how you interact with others. The embedded therapist for the College will soon began support groups offered through Counseling and Consultation Service and they address a variety of law student concerns. Sessions will include sessions about coping with mental health distress, and an opportunity to process concerns and seek support from peers. These sessions also provide a chance to practice social skill building and connection with others.
