The mission of the Center is "to collaborate with campus partners to develop and deliver programs and services targeting physical activity, nutrition, and mental wellbeing that enhance the lives of people who come here."

The vision of the Center is "a campus where wellness is a foundation of everything we do." All endeavors at the Center are focused on this vision. An integrated approach with a shared philosophy is core to the development of the Center's programs. These programs strive to involve every area of the business, including wellness clinic services, the fitness center, and the metabolic and demonstration kitchens.
