New initiative aims
to combine many
services under one
message
By CLAIRE BRYAN
Daily StaffReporter
After launching its new pro-
gram in the fall, Wolverine
Wellness, the University Health
Service is striving to streamline
its offerings to better serve stu-
dents.
Previously known as the
Health Promotion and Commu-
nity Relations at UHS, Wolverine
Wellness is still under develop-
ment, but is beginning to form
a vision for the future of health
offerings at the University.
A draft of the first common
agenda was decided upon over
the summer. In October, Wolver-
ine Wellness discussed the agen-
da with students in student focus
groups and edited the draft.
The current draft states that
"through collective and innova-
tive programs, services and facil-
ities, students will grow in their
capacity to integrate health and

wellness as part of success, build
resilience to manage the fluc-
tuations of life, make thoughtful
choices that reduce harm and
find meaning and purpose."
Wolverine Wellness Director
Mary Jo Desprez said adminis-
trators in 2010 were originally
focused on integrating many
departments to better serve stu-
dent health and wellness.
Currently, different UHS
units focus on different parts
of the student body - Counsel-
ing and Psychological Services
looks at mental health issues
while Recreational Sports looks
at physical fitness issues - and
Wolverine Wellness hopes to
combine efforts for each student
in the future.
"We are looking at how we can
do better by making sure our ser-
vices look at a student as a whole
person," Desprez said.
Along with infrastructure
redesign, UHS could also benefit
from physical renovations, said
Dr. Robert A. Winfield, the Uni-
versity's chief health officer, said.
Though there is no formal pro-
posal to create a new UHS facil-
ity, Winfield has begun to think
that when the time comes, pos-

For 14th year,
program ranks the
University as a top
contributor
By WILL GREENBERG
Daly News Editor
For the 14th year in a row, the
University is on the Peace Corps'
top contributor list, ranking fifth
nationally. N
In 2013, 81 graduates worked

with the Peace Corps, the third-
most out of the large colleges and
universities within the Big Ten,
behind the number one-ranked
University of Wisconsin and
number four-ranked Ohio State
University. This year's group
brings the University to a total
of 2,556 alumni recruits, the
fourth-most of any school since
the Corps first started in 1961.
The University's connection to
the Peace Corps has been strong
since the program's inception,
which began with a speech given
by President John F. Kennedy on

the steps of the Michigan Union
in 1960.
In a statement, Carrie Hes-
sler-Radelet, Peace Corps acting
director, said the organization
has consistently drawn a great
deal of passionate members,
especially from the University.
"The enthusiasm for service
that President Kennedy saw
on the Michigan campus more
than 50 years ago continues
to drive students to the Peace
Corps," Hessler-Radelet said.
"The University of Michigan's
commitment to service and

cross-cultural learning makes it
consistently one of the top five
recruiters of Peace Corps volun-
teers."
Brian Smyser, a graduate stu-
dent in the School of Natural
Resources and Environment and
campus recruiter for the Peace
Corps, said the University's con-
sistently high contribution is
reflective of a strong passion for
volunteerism at the school and
within Ann Arbor.
"University of Michigan
programs are well respected,"
