About Wellness at Penn


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, education, 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 (Student Health and Counseling and Public Health and Wellbeing) that operate collaboratively to create a campus community centered on wellness.
 

Campus Conversations


Listen to the latest episode of our Wellness at Penn podcast here! Campus

Welcome to Campus Conversations, Wellness at Penn’s new podcast that brings us  together to share stories and find strength in  vulnerability. Come along as we dive into the personal stories of members of the Penn community who display grit and resilience in times of adversity.

Episode 1. Our guest is Taunita Stephenson, Head of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging for Wellness at Penn and the Division of Recreation and Intercollegiate Athletics (DRIA). In conversation with Taunita, we learn about what is was like to be an Army brat, make decisions unpopular with her parents, and work for the National Football League.
