Job Description
Wellness Initiative Coordinator
Who We Are:
Swarthmore College’s Student Health and Wellness Center houses a collaborative team of physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, a dietitian, an alcohol and other drug counselor, a health educator, and a therapy dog. The Health and Wellness team supports the needs of a diverse student body, approximately 1,600 undergraduate students, by providing individualized holistic care and campus-wide education. The multidisciplinary team of Swarthmore College health leaders is committed to creating a compassionate environment with a vision of empowering students to be engaged in their continuum of lifelong health and well-being.

The wellness education program includes campus-wide events and activities that help build the skills necessary for healthy living through the promotion of physical, intellectual, emotional, sexual, occupational, financial, and spiritual wellness. Be Well at Swarthmore, our institution-specific model of holistic well-being, recognizes wellness as a lifelong and multi-dimensional process that is personal and cultural — there is no “one size fits all” approach to being well. Through programming that supports the development of the eight interrelated domains of well-being, previously mentioned, Be Well offers a positive and affirming perspective on wellness that recognizes our strengths and encourages community members to invest in their collective resources.
