Student Wellness Center’s Year in Review
Each summer the SWC produces a report documenting new initiatives and highlights from the past academic year. Enjoy reading more about the exciting happenings in our department.
To equip the Dartmouth community to enact positive, data-driven change, below are a variety of reports and data related to the health and wellness of our students and our campus. These data and reports are collected, compiled, and created by various departments across campus and in most cases involve a tremendous amount of collaborative partnership.
The Dartmouth Health Survey asks questions regarding general health; personal safety including sexual, physical and relationship violence; alcohol and other drugs; sexual health; weight, exercise and nutrition; mental health; health and academic performance; and health and student life. This report presents key findings by section, including Dartmouth trends over time as well as National College Health Assessment (NCHA) comparisons, where applicable.
The SWC works with Dartmouth Health Services, the Department of Safety and Security, Judicial Affairs, and the Office of Residential Life to collect and report out undergraduate alcohol-incident data on a termly and annual basis.
The 2017 Dartmouth Sexual Misconduct Survey is a follow-up to the 2015 Association of American Universities (AAU) Survey on Sexual Assault and Sexual Misconduct. The survey is an integral part of our ongoing effort, highlighted by the Moving Dartmouth Forward plan launched by President Philip Hanlon in January 2015, to understand the extent and effects of sexual violence among our student populations and use the data to inform our policies, prevention, and response.
The Annual Security Report documents three calendar years of campus crime and fire statistics that occurred on-campus, in off-campus buildings or properties owned or controlled by Dartmouth College, and on public property within or immediately adjacent to campus. The Annual Security Report also includes institutional policy statements about campus security; crime prevention and education programs, including those focused on sexual assault awareness; the reporting of crimes; and other safety and security matters.
We firmly believe in the importance of research informing practice but also in practice informing research. Below you will find publications co-authored by or featuring contributions from SWC staff members.
