Campus Outdoor Spaces and Mental Health

Where within the outdoor environment do people choose to go when provided with a variety of options offered by the University of Wisconsin campus? 

The EDL’s newest research project is in motion! In both past and present research, exposure to green space has been shown to consistently decrease stress, when depicted through a dose-response model. The Campus Landscape Health project will build on the existing research to consider the impact of different types of green spaces on students experiencing mental distress.
