SWAC Members

Emmons’ Student Wellness Advisory Council 

Emmons’ Student Wellness Advisory Council meets with Senior Director, Sara Semal, weekly to discuss and review Emmons’ services, policies and programming. Additionally, each year SWAC tackles a public health policy issue that affects the Occidental community. Last year, SWAC identified the need for menstrual products in restrooms in academic buildings, the academic commons, JSC and the Cooler. SWAC worked with Emmons, Facilities, Dean of Students, and student groups to develop a policy, plan for implementation, and long-term funding and sustainability. This year SWAC is working on an initiative for better rest and sleep hygiene among college students.
