The Well staff consists of a director, assistant director, 3 health educators, a registered dietician, an office manager and undergraduate and graduate student workers. We recently moved to a larger facility in the center of campus, which has increased our visibility and enhanced our services. We are financially supported through university fees, the Student Health fee, and grant funding. We currently receive grant support from the Virginia Department of Health and the National Social Norms Institute. We are continually seeking new grant funding to augment our health education efforts.
Our staff utilizes a variety of public health strategies to change student behavior including educational programming, norm-setting social marketing approaches, peer education, policy advocacy, community coalitions, and individual counseling.
In 2010 the Wellness Resource Center received the Best Practices in College Health Award for the Clicker Enhanced Social Norms Marketing Campaign from the American College Health Association. Read more about this campaign under our Research tab.
