Wellness Promotion Office

The Wellness Promotion Office provides support to KSC students that will influence their personal development, academic performance, and overall well-being. We use the 9 dimensions of wellness (Social, Physical, Intellectual, Cultural, Emotional, Spiritual, Financial, Environmental, and Occupational) to identify needs and connect students to on and off campus resources.

Wellness Coaching:

We offer the Wellness Coaching services through collaborations with campus and community partners. We use evidence based strategies to help students identify their needs/behavior change goal, help them create a plan to make a change, and share resources available to them.

Nutrition Coaching

Nutrition Coaching is a free, confidential service offered through a collaboration between the KSC Dietetic Internship Program and the Center for Health & Wellness. Nutrition Coaches, who consist of Keene State College Dietetic Interns, offer an initial 15-20 minute goal setting session and 45-60 minute follow up coaching sessions as desired where individualized nutrition education can be provided. Nutrition Coaches will help motivate and enable KSC students toward reaching their personal nutrition goals. Register now! https://houserw.wufoo.com/forms/z1y2qw7g03fdrac/ Questions?

Wellness Peer Educators promote the dimensions of wellness, healthy behaviors, behavior change, and well-being resources at KSC. Our team consists of undergraduate interns from the Health Science- Nutrition, Health Science- Community Health, Health Science- Behavior Health, Psychology, and Communications Departments. Our interns are Nationally Certified Peer Educators through The BACCHUS Initiative at NASPA https://www.naspa.org/constituent-groups/groups/bacchus-initiatives, a national peer education program. The BACCHUS Initiative supports student academic and personal success by teaching skills in addressing and advocating for campus health and safety issues.
