Juilliard Thrives

Artistic Identity Wellbeing:
Artistic Identity Wellbeing focuses on wellness associated with the artist's identity. The Juilliard School's community strives to provide time and space for nurturing the artist behind the art. 

Community & Social Wellbeing:
Community and Social Wellbeing holistically
embrace diverse social, economic, environmental, cultural, and political environments. These principles can distinguish between a good life and a great one. 

Emotional & Physical Wellbeing:
Emotional and Physical Wellbeing focuses on the overall health of an individual (e.g., mind, body, spirit). Emotional and physical health are equally important and need to be taken care of to feel stronger personally and create long-lasting relationships with others.

Financial & Career Wellbeing:
Financial and Career Wellbeing focuses on one's professional purpose in life and how to fulfill that purpose. Professional purpose can drive financial security and how that might change over time. Financial management can help sustain one's self through their professional journey and personal endeavors.
