Office of Student Wellbeing
The Salem College Office of Student Wellbeing educates, encourages, and empowers students to create and sustain healthy lifestyles. The Office offers a nationally recognized, comprehensive women’s wellness program for its students.
Be Well! is a campus-wide initiative, owned by every member of the Salem College community. Through our unique and innovative wellness classes, campus-wide wellness initiatives, and community outreach efforts, the Office of Student Wellbeing leads the campus in creating a culture of wellbeing for students, faculty, and staff, and the greater Salem Community.
With students’ health and safety as top priority, we will maintain continuity of exceptional, student-centered wellness programming consistent with Salem’s Health and Safety Policies for operations during the pandemic.
The Office of Counseling Services is dedicated to supporting and providing services for students who are dealing with emotional and mental health concerns. The health and safety of our community remains a Counseling Services priority during the pandemic. To support students’ needs, Counseling Services will provide in-person counseling sessions, teletherapy options as needed, outreach activities and programs, and psychoeducational groups that abide by Salem’s Health and Safety Policies, as well as collaborate with the Office of Wellbeing and Salem’s student organizations to ensure that students are supported during this return to in-person learning. There will be continuous updates to keep students informed as additional information and resources develop.
We are looking forward to returning to campus and understand that students may be experiencing anxiety or adjustment concerns because of all the things that have occurred since the pandemic began. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request an appointment or call 336 721-2625. Counseling Services is here to support you!
