Wellness at Penn is dedicated to caring for students during their academic journey while creating a campus-wide community of care. Our team is committed to offering a wide range of opportunities to access support, clinical resources, and practical tools to meaningfully engage with one's health and wellbeing.
Our vision is simple: we want to create a campus experience that integrates the science, theory, and practice of wellness. We will accomplish this by infusing wellness across its eight domains throughout the Penn experience through inclusive, innovative, and impactful initiatives. The eight domains of Wellness include: physical, emotional, social, intellectual, environmental, financial, occupational, and spiritual wellness. All of our initiatives are grounded in collaboration and fueled by CARE: compassion, accessibility, respect, and empowerment.
Our organization is built upon two pillars that operate collaboratively to create a campus community centered on wellness:
Student Health and Counseling: Caring for Students During Their Academic Journey
Student Health and Counseling (formerly SHS and CAPS) is the primary care and psychological care division of Wellness at Penn. Our state-of-the-art medical and counseling centers are designed to provide high-quality, compassionate care for undergraduate, graduate, and professional students during their academic journey. Student Health and Counseling is committed to providing safe, accessible, cost-effective, culturally-sensitive, and student-focused care. Our team provides care for acute and chronic health problems, preventative health services, as well as mental health and counseling, crisis management, and consultations.
Public Health and Wellbeing: Creating a Community of Care
Wellness at Penn’s Public Health and Wellbeing (formerly Campus Health) division seeks to create a community of care through advocacy, education, and action. Our dedicated staff focuses on a wide variety of healthy living topics, including sleep hygiene, stress reduction, nutrition, exercise, and sexual health. Public Health and Wellbeing also consists of Immunization and Insurance Compliance.
