Being Well at Cambrian represents the wellness programs and initiatives for our entire Cambrian Family (students, employees, and Alumni). Our well-being foundation sits on eight pillars of wellness that guide us to show up for ourselves and others as the best version of ourselves and to flourish.

What are the benefits of being a Student Wellness Ninja? 

Wellness Ninja

You will receive training designed specifically for the Student Wellness Ninjas. The topics will focus on the science of social connections, empathy and sensitivity as well as training on supports and resources.

You will be able to participate in events and initiatives that fit your schedule. We ask that you are involved in a minimum of two missions per semester. These missions must be completed in addition to the two-hour training session in order to receive an official Co-Curricular Record on your transcript.

The initiatives you are involved in will provide you with invaluable new skills: teamwork, leadership, organization and time management.

One of the greatest benefits of helping others are the positive emotions that these acts induce. Volunteering has been shown to help you become more resilient and to increase your overall physiological health and well-being.
