The Well-being of People, Places, and Planet are Interdependent
The work of the Well-being Collective (WBC) is informed and adapted from the Stanford Social Innovation Review article on Collective Impact (Kania & Kramer, 2011). This framework emphasizes that no single unit, however innovative or influential can foster personal and community well-being alone. Instead, Collective Impact brings people together, in a structured way, to achieve social change. Individual health and well-being issues are interdependent and do not impact campus culture in isolation. Collective Impact efforts prioritize looking at health and wellness through a holistic lens that acknowledges the interdependence of personal and community well-being.
