The Drexel Libraries supports the wellness of students, faculty and staff, with a particular focus on intellectual wellness, one of the eight interconnected dimensions of health and wellness.
Intellectual wellness refers to expanding one’s knowledge, skills and creativity. It focuses on lifelong learning and improving skills in areas such as academics, studying, and stress management.
Intellectual wellness encourages learning. It’s important to explore new ideas in order to become better rounded. It should also stimulate curiosity. Curiosity is important because it motivates you to try new things and develop a better understanding of how you see the relationship between yourself and others.
