Wellness at Emmanuel

Emmanuel College recognizes that the wellness of our students and employees is crucial to success in academia and in the workplace. With the goal of promoting a healthy lifestyle and cultivating an environment that supports the wellbeing of our community, the College initiated The Wellness Committee in the Fall of 2018.

Chaired by Director of Health Services Lauren Davis, the committee consists mostly of student representatives, as well as some additional Emmanuel staff and faculty. If you are interested in being a part of this initiative, please contact Lauren at davisla@emmanuel.edu.

Below are some of the functions of the Wellness Committee, as well as information regarding upcoming events and additional wellness resources.

The committee coordinates an array of programs for the College community, such as cooking classes, physical fitness classes, stress management events, STI education and more.

The committee also offers programs in conjunction with student-run clubs and organizations and departments within Student Affairs.
