Center for Wellness
The Center for Wellness is comprised of Counseling Services, Health Promotion and Education, and Fitness and Wellness Education. Our mission is to provide free, comprehensive, support, programs, and services to all students around mental health, health and wellness education, and an active lifestyle to promote the overall wellbeing of our community.
International Student Services (ISS) assists over 200 non-immigrant visa students at Wentworth Institute of Technology who have joined our community from over 55 countries around the world. Programming and services offered by ISS include orientation for new students, up-to date information on and assistance with U.S. government regulations, and advising on a host of personal, employment, and immigration issues affecting international students.
The Center for Student Life's Student Support Specialists serve as a resource for students. We recognize that students may encounter a variety of challenges during their time with us. We are committed to working towards achieving our vision that Every Student Thrives. Never is this more important as our students persist towards graduation (or even just the end of the semester) amidst a global pandemic and system racism.
Throughout the year, the Student Support Specialists can be available to speak with a student to talk through their specific experience and determine what resources and services on campus (and sometimes off campus) could be helpful. In some instances, we meet with students on a regular basis for ongoing support.
Some services the Student Support Specialists provide include:
• Running of the Leopard Pantry, WIT Wear, the Student Emergency Fund, and the Supply Closet
• Helping students with Medical Leaves of Absence
• Absence Notifications
• Temporary Impairments
• Provide transition support for students who are new or returning to campus
