Personal & Professional Development Opportunities

We provide a wide-range of events, services and opportunities that support our students' personal, professional and academic growth.  These are created in our efforts to promote camaraderie and strengthen professional  networks.  Many of these opportunities fall under our key programs below. 


Comprehensive Wellness Program

Titan Warrior Wellness Program

The Titan Warrior Wellness (TWW) mission is to provide military-connected students with individual and group support, wellness-related activities, and interactive workshops to encourage their well-being over 10 weeks each semester.

It is a research-based, comprehensive program that focuses on military-connected students' strengths while providing personal growth opportunities in 10 domains of wellness:

  1. Educational
  2. Intellectual
  3. Spiritual
  4. Emotional
  5. Environmental
  6. Social
  7. Financial
  8. Relational
  9. Occupational
  10. Physical

The program was developed to address the prevailing stigma connected to wellness, engage students in the pursuit of their personal wellness goals, and highlight the comprehensive nature of our work at the VRC.
