Intellectual Resources

Intellectual well-being means participating in mentally stimulating and creative activities.

This can happen in or out of the classroom. It is the ability to think critically, reason objectively, and make responsible decisions. Intellectual well-being means a life full of learning and being accepting of other perspectives and ideas. VCU offers a variety of intellectual well-being resources.
