On February 23rd, 2013, the Student Wellness Project gathered students, wellness-related student groups, and administrators together at a Wellness Summit to discuss the state of student health and wellness at Columbia and propose improvements. In attendance were representatives from Active Minds, the Columbia Neuroscience Society, Nightline, Stressbusters, Alice!, the Office of Residential Programs, the Undergraduate Recruitment Committee, the Columbia College Student Council, the Engineering Student Council, and the Student Government Association.
The discussions from this summit were compiled into a report that contains three key recommendations for reform at Columbia to improve student wellness:
- New Student Orientation Program (NSOP) Reform
- First Semester Pass/Fail Policy
- Columbia Psychological Services Restructuring/Expansion
The report will be presented to Columbia College Dean James Valentini this Friday, May 3rd.
