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.
If you are interested in being a part of this initiative, please contact Courtney Nugent at nugentc [at] emmanuel.edu (nugentc[at]emmanuel[dot]edu).
