Wellness Resources

There are many different aspects to wellness, and also many types of resources to nourish each aspect. Whether it’s physical, emotional, spiritual, or otherwise, the offices of the Davison Health Center want to provide a collective space for resources to support our wellness as students, staff, and faculty at Wesleyan. We hope this website is a reminder of the larger community of care here at Wesleyan, ready and willing to support you and your holistic wellness.

SHAC - Student Health Advisory Committee
  • SHAC mission and membership

    The Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC) is a collaborative partnership between staff members and students dedicated to actively seeking out and problem solving underrepresented or dynamic health needs present in the Wesleyan student community, as well as raising awareness about and improving existing services.

    SHAC meetings are spaces of resource sharing, idea generation, and potential inter-group coalition building where student and directors of Health Offices (Health Center, CAPS, WesWell and SHAPE) meet and discuss needs, project ideas, and dreams for what better health services at Wesleyan look like.  SHAC aims to generate initiatives to transform ideas into meaningful and necessary change.

    We are looking for new membership (Feb 2022) to assist in our health and wellness efforts moving forward.  Students in the classes of '23, 24, '25 and graduates are encouraged to apply. Graduating seniors are not eligible as we want to have continuity moving through next academic year.  We hope to have a diverse group of students who may select to work on a sub-committee with the health departments listed above on content specific projects.  Please fill out the application form here by February 21.
