Community wellness is the ability to relate to and connect with other people in our world. Our ability to establish and maintain positive relationships with family, friends and co-workers contributes to our community wellness.
"Community" is a Core Value at Salem
One of Salem College's core values is Learning Grounded in Community:
- Recognizing individual potential
- Embracing diversity
- Exemplifying honor
Salem's Committee on Community Wellness
The strategic plan adopted for 2008-2013 called for Salem College to provide a "comprehensive educational experience in a richly diverse community." As part of that commitment, the Committee on Community was formed in 2009 to help collect feedback from faculty, staff, students and others on the campus environment; develop measurable goals to enhance diversity and inclusivity; and recommend action steps for each consecutive academic year.
Committee on Community Members
The committee is made up of a chair; students (traditional, graduate and Fleer Center), including a representative from the SGA executive board; two faculty members; and both exempt and non-exempt staff members.
